Busby Babes Man Utd 1956/57 SIGNED BABES AUTOGRAPHS

An extremely rare, highly sought after set of autographs.

A clipping sized approx 5.5x10 inches that has been HAND SIGNED by Manchester Utd's title winning side of 1956/57. The iconic team nicknamed 'The Busby Babes' were at the time the most exciting young footballing side in world football and were surely destined for greatness until tragedy struck in 1958 when an aircraft attempting to take off crashed killing 8 of the players. The event is now known historically as 'The Munich Air Disaster.

The autographed clipping has been HAND SIGNED in blue ink by 12 members of the Busby Babes including 4 who perished at the tragic event in 1958 and 2 who had to retire due to the injuries sustained.

The autographs consist of - Ian Greaves (died 2009), Liam Whelan (died 1958), Gordon Clayton (died 1991), Jackie Blanchflower (died 1998), Jeff Whitefoot, Bobby Charlton, Bill Foulkes, Colin Webster (died 2001), Tommy Taylor (died 1958), Roger Byrne (died 1958), Johnny Berry and Eddie Coleman (died 1958).

The clipping has been attached to a scrap book page along with some other clippings that are unsigned.

Beautiful vintage autographs.
