1956 Baseball All Star Game Signed Program
The line-up card for the Mid-Summer Classic of '56 read like a veritable "who's who" in Cooperstown. Each dugout was filled with a number of Hall of Famers and one lucky fan got most of them to sign the official game program (EX-MT) presented here. In near-perfect ballpoint are the autographs of: Mantle (Triple Crown year), Campanella, Ted Williams, Banks, Gilliam, Fox, Snider, Kaline, Aaron, Martin, Roberts, Kuenn, Chandler, Frank Robinson (rookie), Musial, Mays, Bell, Alston, Klu, Mathews, Berra, and more (40 in total), all of which grade 8-9/10. Add to the bunch Commissioner Ford Frick's signature inside and what you have is an All-Star inspired item for the ages.
