Sure the New York Yankees always had plenty to look forward to as Spring Training rolled around, but the 1941 season provided plenty of extra excitement as Joe DiMaggio hit in a record fifty-six consecutive games in route to the franchise’s 12th AL pennant and 9th World Series championship. Team-signed by (26) members of the memorable 1941 Yankees squad the offered 1941 Spring Training roster card is highlighted by the endorsements of (8) HOFers including the record setting “Yankee Clipper”.
Applied in pencil to the front and back covers of this vintage souvenir, the (26) signatures average highly desirable (“8-9”) potency unless noted with: HOFers: Joe DiMaggio (“7-8”), Earle Combs (coach), Bill Dickey, Lefty Gomez, Joe McCarthy (manager), Phil Rizutto, Chas. Ruffing; Keys: John Murphy (d.1970), Red Rolfe (d.1969), Tim Sullivan (batboy), Steve Sundra (d.1952); Others: Ernie Bonham, Norm Branch, Marvin Breuer, Spud Chandler, Frankie Crosetti, Atley Donald, Tom Henrich, Tommy Holmes, Charlie Keller, John Lindell, Jerry Priddy, John Schulte (coach), George Selkirk, Charley Stanceau, John Sturm.
