Dedicated autograph hounds take up the chase for this Philadelphia Athletics signed flats lot of (115). Most of the gathered players are deceased and all suited up for the Athletics and other teams between 1899 and the 1950s. Highlights are two pitchers from the 1927 Yankees team, with Waite Hoyt (Hall of Fame) and Bob Shawkey; along with Clarence "Ace" Parker, who is in the Football Hall of Fame. A few played for Connie Mack's great dynasties of 1909-1914 and 1928-1932 including "Rube" Walberg, and several are among the most prominent players to take the field over the last years the A's called "Philly" home, such as Gus Zernial, Eddie Joost, Ferris Fain, Alex Kellner, Dave Philley and 1952 AL MVP Bobby Shantz. Among the others are a good number who played so long ago or for such a short duration, that they can be considered obscure and significantly tough examples. Generally the materials are crisp and pleasing, though several premium photos have been folded, and the autograph strength ranges ("6" to "9") with the majority presenting as firm examples. Auction LOA from JSA.
