As detailed in a must-read, homer-by-homer account of the streak (linked here), Dale Long mustered superhuman strength for that one week in 1956, launching Mantle-like tape-measure blasts that dazzled the baseball world to the point that he reportedly received one of the sport's first standing-ovation curtain calls after HR #8. This program hails from that very record-setting contest. It's personalized to a "Ronnie" (presumably by the scorer) and dated a few days later. The scoring pages show Long's 4th-inning HR encircled with a nearby notation "Long - 8th HR in 8 games." VG condition overall. Accompanied by a Dale Long real-photo postcard (pre-printed facsimile signature) mailed to the same Ronnie and postmarked 9/25/56.
