Each of the artworks is signed by DeMarco in black ink. The artwork offered here that was used in the 1950 Callahan set is that of Ray Schalk (11.5 x 16.25 inches). The remaining artworks (9 x 11.5 inches; each of which may or may not have been published) are those of Lefty Gomez, Waite Hoyt, Yogi Berra (signed by Berra on the front in blue Sharpie; signature grades "10"), Joe McCarthy, and Miller Huggins. The Schalk artwork displays tape residue on the reverse, while each of the smaller examples displays minor trimming. Aside from that, all are in Excellent condition overall. Total: 6 artworks (one signed by Berra). Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Pre certified by Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication.. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000.
