Default Memory Lane Players' League Document Find

Since catalogs have just come out I am interested in the response to the Players' League document find featured in the year-end Memory Lane Auction. From an historical perspective I consider it one of the more exciting finds in many years. From the perspective of an autograph collector (I am not one) I would think this unprecedented. What do you guys, especially those interested in early baseball history, think?

I saw the documents at the National, and they're very cool, regardless of their monetary value. As someone who does a lot of archival research in one of my other lives (as a theater historian), and as a longtime student of early baseball history (and a member of SABR's 19th century e-mail list), I'm excited, though I hope scans of the documents will remain available to researchers.

Some background on that item in an audio report from
NPR's "Only a Game" podcast of December 8:

Oh, to think what got trashed before anyone realized...

Definitely history, but more like that would be cool to see in a museum cool, and not something I personally connect with to the point where I would drop a small fortune on it.

Just had a chance to browse these documents; really fires the imagination, thinking back to the game at that time. I hope that the lucky winner allows occasional public access, perhaps lends them now and then to a museum.
