    Description

    1924 Eddie Plank Signed Original Artwork. "Gettysburg Eddie" learned the game of baseball on grounds hallowed by this nation's most historic Civil War battle, and took those skills to Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics and eventual Hall of Fame immortality. With his term of service to the Major Leagues confined entirely to the Dead Ball Era, and his death in 1926, Plank makes for an exceedingly difficult autograph, and even the finest collections are usually lacking a specimen. Perhaps the finest to reach the auction block is presented here, rendered in 9/10 black fountain pen ink for a young artist who drew an impressive likeness of the three hundred game winner with colored pencil above. The entire page upon which both the artwork and signature reside measure 9x13" in size, making for a particularly bold display. The page shows no condition flaws to note, adding to the miracle that such a wonder could even exist. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
