Lot 2.  Scarce 1952 Baseball Heroes Comic Featuring Babe Ruth Plus a Second Comic. This one-shot from Fawcett Publications presents “The True Story of Baseball’s Hall of Fame.” In capsule form, it introduces the Hall of Fame members.

Lot 3.  1971 Baltimore at Pittsburgh Game 5 World Series Baseball Signed by Umpire Ed Sudol. Gene Clines, Bob Robertson and Nellie Briles were the stars of this game, which Pittsburgh won, 4-0. Briles pitched a two-hitter, Clines contributed a triple, stole a base, scored two runs and drove in one, and Robertson belted a bases-empty home run. Sudol was one of the umpires working the game. He is perhaps best known as the umpire behind the plate when Hank Aaron hit his 715th home run. The ONL Feeney ball shows strong pre-printed areas, a couple of dirt marks and a couple of light stains. Sudol autographed the panel to the right of the pre-printed are; his signature is a personalized 9-10. On the left side, Sudol wrote “Game Ball, World Series 1971, Fifth game.” Sudol passed away in 2004. Kevin Keating authenticated Sudol’s autograph.

Lot 7.  Robin Roberts (HoF) Signed, Hand-Titled “We Won the Pennant" Print – 1 of Only 36. Before his passing in May, Roberts autographed, hand-titled and hand-numbered only 36 (at most) of these dramatic Bill Purdom lithographs. This example is #18/36, one of 36 prints pulled from an edition of 1,500 produced for sale unsigned by the Baseball Hall of Fame. The artwork is similar to another Purdom print produced in an edition of 336 and with the title printed on, “We Won the Pennant October 1, 1950.” Roberts autographed about 200 copies of the second print. The prints are similar, but show significant differences. The print offered here provides a closer view and larger image of Roberts than the other, and an outfielder has been added in front of the Schaefer scoreboard. The print shows Roberts looking to his catcher for a sign in the bottom of the ninth inning at Ebbets Field in the final game of the 1950 season. Leading 4-1, Roberts closed down the Dodgers. The victory was his 20th and the Phillies’ 91st, which clinched the N.L. championship. Roberts’ autograph in gold is gem mint 10, and he added “‘We Won the Pennant’ 10/1/50.” Famed sports artist Bill Purdom also signed the 11” 16” print, which has a 9” x 14” image area and is double-matted 16” x 20”. PSA/DNA authenticated the autograph and has provided a certificate. Be one of only 36 or fewer who will ever own one of these superb signed lithographs!
Winning Bid $121.

Lot 8.  Robin Roberts Signed “Whiz Kids” 1950 N.L. Pennant-Clincher Print by Purdom. Titled “We Won the Pennant, October 1, 1950,” the print shows Roberts on the pitcher’s mound in the bottom of the ninth inning with the Phillies leading Brooklyn, 4-1, at Ebbets Field. Roberts held the Dodgers scoreless and recorded his 20th win. The victory was also the Phils’ 91st, good enough to wrap up the N.L. pennant in the final game of the season. Roberts signed the 11” x 16” pint (9” x 14” image area), #165 of 336, in gold. His signature is gem mint 10. The artist, Bill Purdom, also signed. The print is double-matted to 16” x 20”.
