    Looks like the same pic twice - I don't see Bobby Bush on either of them.

    Look in the second pic directly above the ballcap of player in the ad. And yes I accidentally posted the Brooklyn Dodgers scorecard twice. Bobby Bush is on the scorecard signed by members of the Mobile Bears.

    Isn't it great when the sports autographs are actually readable and not just scribbles!

    All glory is fleeting.

    Sorry about that - not sure how I missed it but he’s right there! I recently sold hundreds of early 1950s autos from players across the majors, minors, coaches, umps, etc. but haven’t come across his name or auto. Sorry for my confusion and that I couldn’t help, but good luck tracking him down.

    Yes it is. My wife and I were able to identify all of these autographs easily. Just can't figure out who Bobby Bush is.

    Thanks for looking. Everyone else who signed these can be identified by searching their names except for Mr. Bush.

    Bobby Bush ... possibly the batboy?

    There's a Robert Bush listed in Baseball Reference who played in 1947 - 1948. Possible I guess.

    Also a Louis Bush who was on the 1947 Atlanta Crackers roster. Maybe went by a middle name "Robert". Just speculation of course.

    Thank you for this info. Not a whole lot out there on these two guys.

    This is the obituary of the young lady who was lucky enough to obtain these autographs in the early 1950's. She signed her name at the top of each scorecard. Mary was a very successful and amazing woman.
