Robin Roberts “Double Vision” Collection of 20 Items, 16 of Them Autographed.

Lot 37. Robin Roberts “Double Vision” Collection of 20 Items, 16 of Them Autographed. Generally including two of each collectible, this lot offers substantial potential break-up value for the dealer and plenty of material to trade for the collector. 1-2. Two signed, limited edition (#156 and 163 of 336) Bill Purdom lithographs titled “We Won the Pennant October 1, 1950.” Featuring a 9” x 14” image capturing Roberts in N.L. Pennant-clinching final inning of the 1950 regular season at Ebbets Field, each 11” x 16” print is double-matted to 16” x 20”, ready for framing. 3-4. Two 34” Hillerich & Bradsby Louisville Slugger bats, both autographed, one with “Hall of Fame 1976” added, and the other, with “1950 Whiz Kids.” The first addition is rare because Roberts typically indicated his Cooperstown status with “HOF 76.” 5-6. Two unsigned bats as in 4-5, one engraved with Roberts’ name and “Louisville Slugger,” and the other with his name and “1950 Whiz Kids.” 7-8. Two unsigned size 52 Roberts replica home jerseys, one for 1948 and another for 1950, from the Major League Baseball Cooperstown Collection produced by Mitchell & Ness of Philadelphia. 9-10. Two Phillies replica caps, one for 1948 and the other for 1950, size 7 3/8, from the New Era OML Official On-Field Collection. Roberts signed each on the bill. 11-12. Two Time May 28, 1956 reproduction 11” x 16” covers with Roberts’ autograph on his image. 13-14. Two copies of The Whiz Kids and the 1950 Pennant, mint 1996 hardbacks and dust jackets, one autographed by Roberts and co-author C. Paul Rogers III on the title page, and the other signed by Roberts alone. 15-16. Two autographed Hall of Fame yellow plaque postcards. 17-18. Two OML Selig baseballs signed on the sweet spot. 19-20. Two OML Selig baseballs with the Hall of Fame logo, both signed on the sweet spot. To one, Roberts added “HOF 76,” and to the other “Hall of Fame 1976,” a very rare addition. These 20 items generally are mint with gem mint 10 signatures. Kevin Keating authenticated all of the signatures, and PSA/DNA, all but the ball with the “HOF 76” addition and the two bats, which were not submitted. The other signed items come with a PSA/DNA Certificate of Authenticity, except for the caps, which have PSA/DNA stickers, but not the certificates. Collectively, these items were offered on Roberts’ website for well over $1,000.
