Large collection of sports autographs, including those of baseball, football, and basketball players, nearly all of which were personally obtained by the original owner during his childhood. Many of the baseball and basketball autographs are featured in an autograph album he compiled in the 1950s and 1960s. The remainder of the collection consists mainly of government postcards. Approximately half of the autograph album consists of entries by his schoolmates, but the other half was used to collect the signatures of his favorite athletes. The signatures, scripted in a variety of inks, grade 7/10 on average. Very Good condition overall. Autograph Album. Baseball: Elston Howard, Ralph Houk, Hector Lopez, Yogi Berra, Ralph Terry, Red Barber (Dodgers and Yankees announcer), Mel Allen (Yankees announcer), Jim Busby, Jack Reed, and Tom Tresh.
