The Hall of Famer signs the cover of a program for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Program signed: "Al Barlick", 30 pages, 8x11. Program for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, New York, June 9-11, 1989. A WWII Coast Guard veteran with a salty tongue, Al Barlick (1915-1995) was firm and tough and demanded respect. He earned the respect of his peers and players alike with booming, basso calls, clear and decisive hand signals, knowledge of rules, proficiency on balls and strikes, ability to anticipate and then handle rough situations and unceasing hustle. Barlick, who umpired a record seven All-Star Games, spanning four decades, was a no-nonsense type. He stopped a game at Shea Stadium to have the coaching box re-chalked and forfeited a game in Philadelphia when unruly fans hit him with a tomato and fellow ump Lee Ballanfant with a bottle. Barlick, who was a professional umpire for five decades (27 full seasons), had been one of the youngest (at age 25) to reach the majors. He was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1989. Fine condition.
