Lot 724: 1932 Yankee Team Sheet with Ruth & Gehrig
Outstanding collection '32 Yankees autographs -- with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig the 1st two names on one sheet. There are 27 signatures sprinkled over 3 cut sheets apparently from a note pad with each page inscribed "Carnegie Steel Company". All signatures are bright and bold in black ink, and Gehrig appears a 2nd time on another sheet between Art Jorgens and Cy Perkins. Others include Frank Crosetti, Ben Chapman, Johnny Murphy, Myril Hoag, Ed Wells, etc. This was one of the mightiest Yankee editions ever, winning 107 games and sweeping the Cubs in the WS made famous by Ruth's "Called Shot". Sheets are VG with some minor damage and browning.
