    Description

    1909 President William Howard Taft Signed Large Photograph. He pioneered the tradition of the Presidential first pitch in 1912, though he missed the Senators' Opening Day festivities that year to attend the funeral of friends lost in the Titanic disaster. This might be the finest signed image of the twenty-seventh President in the hobby, a flawless 11x14" image underscored by an unimprovable black fountain pen inscription reading, "For T.J. Gentire (?) with best wishes of Wm. H. Taft, March 13, 1909." Matted and framed to a museum quality 19x25". Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
