Description

En route to a fourth pennant and third World Series title in seven years, the 1932 New York Yankees had little trouble with their New England-based “rivals.” In fact, the Bronx Bombers went 17-5 in head-to-head play that year against a Carmines team that endured a franchise-worst 43-111 showing. Headlined by Lou Gehrig, a group of combatants from both sides seemed compliant (at least with the fan who acquired these autographs) as they signed this vintage album page. The 3-1/2”-wide page is signed in blue-ink fountain pen, undoubtedly at a Yankees-Red Sox meeting. Pennings average (“9”) potency and include: Boerner, Durham, Gehrig, Moore, Olson, Perkins, Pickering, Rhyne, Watwood and Weiland. Full photo LOA from JSA.

Note: the sheet is unevenly trimmed at the top. This does not affect any of the signatures. Minimally affected are the pennings of Johnny Watwood and Hal Rhyne, as a small piece of transparent tape covers portions of both. A horizontal compacting fold affects the “E” in Ed Durham. The Gehrig scripting, meanwhile, is free of any interference and displays as one of the strongest you’ll ever see!
