Fascinating page torn from an unknown publication includes three autographs, highlighted by Hall of Famer Honus Wagner. The 5x7.25" page represents pages 11 and 12 of that mystery publication, with the page 12 side bearing an article about diet and conditioning, and page 11 consisting of an autograph page with a line for each baseball position. Al Todd has signed on the catcher's line in green ballpoint ink, Cy Blanton has put his mark in black ballpoint ink on one of the three lines for pitchers, and curiously, Wagner has also signed in black ballpoint ink on a pitcher line, right above the space for a coach (these are the only signatures on the page). Some amateur sleuthing indicates that Todd and Blanton both played for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1934-36, which also covers the period during which Wagner was a coach for the Bucs, thus this is likely from that mid-'30s period. Page is in nice shape with only slight age toning, autos average 8-9/10 on this well-preserved item.
