In all 18 signatures, including 13 members of the 1985 Detroit Tigers, their manager, three members of the broadcast team, and - on verso - a world famous orchestra conductor. The 1985 Detroit Tigers finished 84-77, good for only third place in the very competitive American League East. However, the 1984 World Champion Tigers (104-58) are on the short list of the greatest baseball teams ever. Eleven of the 13 players represented here were on that 1984 team, as was Hall of Fame manager SPARKY ANDERSON, previous winner of two World Series with the 1977-1978 Cincinnati Reds. AL KALINE and JIM NORTHRUP, Tigers broadcasters in the 1980s, had been members of the 1968 World Champion Tigers roster. "Mister Tiger", Al Kaline, is in the Hall of Fame, and the third announcer here - ERNIE HARWELL, a baseball announcer for all but the first 30 of his 92 years, is in the broadcasters' wing of the Hall. Among the other noteworthy players signing here were GUILLERMO "WILLIE" HERNANDEZ, the AL Cy Young Award winner in the championship year of 1984, and All-Stars CHET LEMON and FRANK TANANA. Japanese Conductor SEIJI OZAWA served as Conductor of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (1965-1969). He went on to serve as Music Director for the San Francisco Symphony (1970-1972), the Boston Symphony Orchestra (1973-2002), and the Vienna State Opera (2002-2010). He is the winner of a Grammy and two Emmys. Toned. Somewhat worn. Lightly frayed along bottom edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
