1926 Hughie "Eeh Yah" Jennings Single Signed Baseball....
Jennings' health had apparently shown temporary improvement by June 5, 1926, when he appeared at the Polo Grounds to watch the Giants, with McGraw back at the helm, win a one-to-nothing pitchers' duel over their rival Brooklyn Dodgers. From this contest derives one of the rarest and most coveted singles Heritage has yet offered, a spectacular ONL (Heydler) sphere gorgeously inscribed by the Hall of Fame manager:
Best wishes from Hugh "Eeh-Yah" Jennings, New York Base Ball Club, June 5, 1926.
Jennings remains one of the toughest challenges for collectors of 20th century Hall of Fame singles, and the 8.5/10 black fountain pen ink utilized here establishes the presented example as the finest of that microscopic supply. The addition of Jennings' famous nickname and closing notation only enhances its tremendous appeal. The ball itself is attractively toned with minor handling which causes no detriment. We expect intense interest in this offering, so bidders are advised to prepare for a battle. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
