The Georgia Peach was famously late to the ceremony, thus absent from the inaugural class photo (modern print) that serves as the nucleus of this special display. But that very first inductee to the sport's official pantheon appears at the twelve o'clock position, both in portrait form as an entry in the original Perez-Steele trading card set, and again in a boldly rendered cut signature. Each of his ten fellow inductees are similarly represented, all rating 8/10 or better on the most exacting of grading scales. The full cast of characters:
Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Larry Lajoie, Connie Mack, Cy Young, Babe Ruth, Eddie Collins, Grover Cleveland Alexander (rare full name autograph!), Honus Wagner, George Sisler and Tris Speaker.
The display is further enhanced by an engraved name plaque that underscores each cut signature, and another that identifies the photograph at center as "Hall of Fame Class of 1939." Professionally matted and framed to final dimensions of 32x42". A sturdy cornerstone upon which to build a quality baseball autograph collection. Each autograph is individually slabbed in a PSA/DNA holder. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
*A donation of $100 to the American Red Cross is required to attend the Live auction.
