Rare piece, this is a large format (9 1/4 x 12 1/4) 204 page first edition book The American Diamond by Branch Rickey printed in 1965. This has the dust jacket with typical wear including chips on the bottom border. Great piece as this is signed Oct 18 1965: “...as a friend of mine I want you to have this early copy of The American Diamond Sincerely Branch Rickey”. Signed in black ballpoint, this is special as Rickey died in 1965, making signed copies extremely rare. Important book from one of the most important figures in all of baseball history, a very special item that cannot have very many counterparts in circulation. JSA LOA.
