Lot 518: 1946 Bob Feller's All Stars vs. Satchel Paige's All Stars Program
In 1946, Bob Feller organized the first barnstorming tour to use airplanes to travel from site to site. For his team, he recruited all-stars from both major leagues. As his main opponent, he asked Satchel Paige to head a team of Negro league all-stars. Although the program is undated, it is scored in pencil. In this particular game, Feller's All-Stars included Johnny Berardino, Mickey Vernon, Stan Musial, Charley Keller, Ken Keltner, Jeff Heath, Sam Chapman, Rollie Helmsley, Frankie Haynes, Bob Lemon, and Bob Feller. Page’s All-Stars included a line-up of players not printed in the program: Williams, Hyde, Stone, Hoskins, Nelson, Steele, Moody, Neal, Haywood, McDaniels and Page. VG-EX condition.
