For sale is an autographed Dennis "Bose" Biddle (Chicago American Giants, Negro League) Rookie card. This is identified as Bose's rookie card and is printed by the Yesterday's Baseball series. The card was signed for me personally by Dennis Bose Biddle in Cooperstown during the 2007 Hall of Fame induction weekend. He played for the Chicago American Giants during the 1953 and 1954 seasons as an 18 to 20 year old.

T appears to be some controversy about Biddle's credentials as a "Negro League" player since the Chicago American Giants were no longer an official Negro League team in 1953 and 1954. Many teams were not officially affiliated with a league. Instead they would barnstorm around the country playing games with other like teams. Seems like a semantics controversy as a number of players say they played with or against Biddle as a Chicago American Giant.

The card is in excellent near mint or better condition. The scan shows it is fairly well-centered with four perfect square corners and edges. T is no wear, damage or imperfections evident. The autograph is clean and readable, signed in black fine point pen.

Our comments on condition are based on general observation and not a specific grading system. The scan shows the actual cards for sale and is provided for your evaluation.
