1904-1956 Baseball Sheet Music Collection (15)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,067
Collection of fifteen different baseball sheet musics, spanning the years 1904 to 1956, including one signed by Joe DiMaggio and another by Willie Mays. Every sheet music in the collection pertains to baseball in some way, and many (in fact, most) are highly regarded classics in the field of baseball sheet-music collecting. This is a particularly impressive group in terms of highlights, especially for a relatively small number of sheet musics. This is a baseball sheet-music connoisseur's collection, carefully assembled, including many rarities. All are ideal for framing and display. 1) 1904 Husky Hans (Honus Wagner pictured on cover).
