Two New York Yankees Signature Displays

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,880.00

Barry Halper's love of the Yankees and his passion for autograph collecting are both reflected in the this collection of two New York Yankee multisigned display pieces. The first piece is a 10 x 14.75-inch sheet of white cardboard (bearing a New York Yankees decal in the center) that has been signed in blue Sharpie by the following seventy-one former Yankee players: Luis Arroyo, Hank Bauer, Dale Berra, Yogi Berra, Ewell Blackwell, Johnny Blanchard, Lew Burdette, Hank Borowy, Clete Boyer, Chris Chambliss, Jim Coates, Joe Collins, Bud Daley, Bill Dickey, Joe DiMaggio, Art Ditmar, Al Downing, Ryne Duren, Tom Ferrick, Whitey Ford, Bob Friend, Lefty Gomez, Bob Grim, Buddy Hassett, Tommy Henrich, Ralph Houk, Catfish Hunter, Reggie Jackson, Tommy John, Charlie Keller, Johnny Kucks, Don Larsen, Bob Lemon, Phil Linz, Ed Lopat, Hector Lopez, Lee MacPhail, Mickey Mantle, Billy Martin, Lindy McDaniel, Sam McDowell, Johnny Mize, Bobby Murcer, Phil Niekro, Irv Noren, Joe Pepitone, Gaylord Perry, Vic Raschi, Hal Reniff, Allie Reynolds, Bobby Richardson, Mickey Rivers, Phil Rizzuto, John Sain, Joe Sewell, Bobby Shantz, Spec Shea, Rollie Sheldon, Moose Skowron (twice), Enos Slaughter, Bill Stafford, Tom Sturdivant, Ralph Terry, Luis Tiant, Tom Tresh, Bob Turley, David Wells, Roy White, Gene Woodling, and two others (illegible). Each of the signatures grades "9/10" with the exception of the four (Gomez, Jackson, Reynolds, and one illegible) that overlap the decal (somewhat lighter in strength, grading "7"). The second piece is an 8 x 10inch illustrated print depicting the Yankee Bomber plane flying over Yankee Stadium. It has been signed in black marker by the following nineteen former Yankee players: Hank Bauer, Yogi Berra, Clete Boyer, Tommy Byrne, Tex Clevenger, Bill Dickey, Joe DiMaggio, Goose Gossage, Ron Guidry, Tommy Henrich, Catfish Hunter, Reggie Jackson, Don Larsen, Gil McDougald, Graig Nettles, Joe Pepitone, Bobby Richardson, Mickey Rivers, Moose Skowron. All of the signatures grade "9/10"; however, a few contrast poorly against the dark background. In total there are seventy-seven different signatures featured on the two pieces, including those of sixteen Hall of Fame players. Both items are in Excellent condition overall and each is perfect for framing. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,880.00
