Collection of 60 near-identical autographed display sheets, 55 of which feature the signature of a Hall of Fame player. The design of each sheet (8 x 10 inches) features the respective player’s lifetime statistics and major achievements printed above a large rectangular box in which the player has signed his name in black marker. A small photo of the player appears in the upper left quadrant. What makes these sheets special is that each has been officially notarized along the base, certifying the authenticity of the signature. A few different companies produced these sheets during the mid-to-late 1980s before production abruptly ceased, probably for financial reasons. The signatures range from “7” to “10,” averaging “8/9.” The sheets are in Excellent to Mint condition overall. The number of signed sheets for each player, if more than one, is noted in parenthesis. The collection is composed of the following: Hall of Famers (55): Aaron, Aparicio, Appling, Ashburn, Bench, Berra, Boudreau (2), Brock, Carew, DiMaggio (2), Doerr, Drysdale, Feller (2), Ferrell, Ford, Gibson (2), Gomez, Herman, Hubbell, Hunter, Irvin, Kaline, Kell, Killebrew, Kiner (2), Koufax, Lemon, Lyons, Mantle, Marichal, Mays, Mazeroski, Mize, Perry, Reese, Roberts (2), B. Robinson, F. Robinson, Schoendienst, Slaughter, Snider (2), Spahn, Stargell, Wilhelm, B. Williams, T. Williams, Wynn, and Yastrzemski. Non Hall of Famers (5): Billy Martin (2), Bobby Shantz, Bobby Thomson, and Johnny Vander Meer. Total: 60 sheets. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Pre certified by Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
