An approximate 5 x 7 inch "WATERMAN'S AUTOGRAPH ALBUM" page, boldly signed in black fountain pen by seven members of the 1932 New York Yankees, an eventual World Series Champion team, with an additional (13) signatures from a few 1932 Detroit Tigers team members and scattered other players from the Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Browns. There are FIVE Hall of Famers. The front contains the majority of Yankees including bold signatures of Babe Ruth, Lefty Gomez, Chas. Ruffing, and Lou Gehrig. The Gehrig is traced over the "Lou G" portion, with clean finish to the Gehrig. However, it is our contention this enhancement was done in Gehrig's own hand. Just below his signature is a squiggly line in the same pen. We surmise the ink began to run dry when Gehrig began his signature, then squiggled the line below to get the ink to keep flowing. Next to Lou's name is the scripted name of Eleanor Gehrig, Lou's wife, a very rare signature. Other names on the obverse are of Russ Van Atta, Dan McFadden, Sam Gray, Sam West, and Lou Chiozza. The reverse contains Hall of Famer Chas. Gehringer plus Ray Hayworth, John Stone, and Earl Webb of the Tigers plus Jack Crouch, Frank Grube, Evar Swanson, and Paul Gregory of the White Sox, and Yankee Jack Saltzgaver. This page is authenticated and encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with many high grade signatures including a tremendous Babe Ruth.
