Mystery solved on the last autograph!!

The listing thought that "Bebop" might be Harold “Bee-Bop” Gordon. I found a couple of Gordon signatures online and they looked far too neat to fit.

But I came across a 1953 Barnstorming roster and there is a Spec Bebop who played the position of ENT.

A quick Google search confirmed that Spec Bebop was a midget performer who used to perform for the Indianapolis Clowns.

I can't imagine there are too many autographs out there from the comedy element from the Negro Leagues.

Really excited about this!
