Highlights: It’s World Series time and Historic Autographs is happy to announce the release of our 2018 HA Capitol of Baseball Series 1 featuring an overload of Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio autographs – some of the best rate of pull EVER for these baseball stalwarts.
The Big Apple, the City that Never Sleeps, Gotham, the Empire City – no matter what name New York City is called, it has always been an integral part of America – but NYC could have easily have been called the “Capitol of Baseball” from 1949-1956. During this eight year run, (14) of the (16) teams that played in the World Series were located within the New York City limits and a NYC team won every year.
Historic Autographs is honoring these great baseball teams with a two-series product that will include ALL of the players from each World Series roster – with each year having its own subset within the series. With rosters that were loaded with Hall of Famers and fan favorites, the Capitol of Baseball is cherished as much now as it was 60 years ago.
Series 1 will have the following teams (even year National League champions and odd year American League champions).
Every player in EVERY year has no less than 5 of each in the subset – so there are (10) total Jackie Robinson, (10) total Roy Campanella, (30) total Mickey Mantle, (20) total Joe DiMaggio, (20) total Casey Stengel, (13) total Willie Mays and (10) total Gil Hodges – and one of these players is GUARANTEED in EVERY CASE.
Over 40% of the boxes will have Hall of Famers, not to mention those TOUGH autographs of men such as Stuffy Stirnweiss, Elston Howard, Don Bessent, Billy Cox, Carl Furillo, Jim Gilliam, Billy Martin, Joe Page and Hank Thompson.
