American Aces Album
1978 1st edition - Another book that belonged to the famous signature collector John Shaw. This book was a labor of love for him. He traveled all over the country aquiring the 81 aces signatures in this book. Many of the top aces signed this book such as Ken Walsh (21 vics), John Thornell (17 vics), James Swett (15 vics) etc.

The signatures in the book are as follows
On this list all the signatures with a RED X in front of them on the list are signed on the first two pages of the book.
Allen - Thornell. Duffy, Graham and Miller also signed in the front of the book
