Bill Veeck Autographed “Thirty Tons a Day.”

Lot 71. Bill Veeck Autographed “Thirty Tons a Day.” Veeck was enshrined posthumously at Cooperstown in 1991 for his contributions to baseball in a career that spanned four decades and five teams. He died in 1986. His impact on the game was significant. Loved by both the public and his players, he is known for his rule-breaking and publicity stunts. At the same time, he is more seriously respected for signing the first African-American player in the American League, Larry Doby, to the Cleveland Indians in 1947. This hardback book, written with Ed Linn, focuses on Veeck’s management of Boston’s semi-moribund Suffolk Downs racetrack beginning in 1969. Veeck’s signature on the flyleaf is mint 9 and authenticated by Kevin Keating. The 1972 book, an apparent first edition, and the dust jacket are vg-ex. Winning Bid $75.
