Very cool autograph book from Oklahoma or Texas. Story is that the local players got together for an exhibition game in the off season. Whether that's true or not it would explain the mix of Major Leaguers and nobodies.

We only got the Mantle page authenticated, thinking if that page was good what are the odds that the lesser names aren't.

Gorgeous early Mantle signature along with Red Davis (Deceased 2002) and Kal Segrist (Deceased 2015) two players whose autographs are fairly tough as they only got cups of coffee in the Majors. CAS certified with full letter.

Other autographs include:

Hap Morse Deceased 1974 Cup of Coffee with Cardinals in 1911!
Dusty Boggess Deceased 1968 Career Minor Leaguer
