Large and bold signatures of these five players on a 3½" X 6" pale blue sheet, n.p., n.y. [likely 1930]. Near fine. Schang signs at top, with a small (3¼" X 3/4") typed slip beneath this ("Veteran Big League / Catching Ace (1765 games) / 17 years American League"), then below this are Paul Waner, Lloyd Waner, Haas and Fonseca. A unique and attractive grouping that includes two scarce Hall of Fame brothers -- and accompanied by two fine modern color reproductions (Dover Press) from the "Diamond Stars" series of baseball cards for Lloyd Waner and Paul Waner, each glossy heavy stock 2½" X 3" -- Lloyd in 1934 catching a ball in center field and Paul in 1935 striking a batting pose.
