1946 Morris (Moe) Berg Signed Nuremberg Trials Ticket.

He was one of the most fascinating figures in baseball history despite his limited athletic talents, a Princeton-educated multi-linguist who joined legendary players like Ruth, Gehrig and Foxx on the 1934 Tour of Japan for the purpose of espionage on behalf of the OSS, the precursor to the modern-day Central Intelligence Agency. Here we find an autograph from the man Casey Stengel once called "the strangest man ever to play baseball," provided in the most intriguing format we've ever encountered, a ticket for the "International Military Tribunal" of Nazi Germany war criminals, better known to history as the Nuremberg Trials. The ticket (2x4") is applied to the blank side of an index card. As a member of the Jewish faith, Berg surely witnessed the proceedings with particular interest and sadness, and one can only imagine his state of mind when providing this autograph to a fellow attendee. Full letter COA from PSA DNA.
