Washington Senators and opposition parties take a stand for your vote of approval, with this collection of (4) autographed programs. Dating from 1958-1964, these vintage gameday souvenirs represent both former Senators franchises, which are now the Minnesota Twins, and the Texas Rangers. Signature strength ranges ("6" to "9"), and several high profile autograph collecting targets make this group very desirable. Auction LOA from JSA.
