    1930s Gabby Hartnett Signed and Unsigned Photograph Collection. Lot of 3 A trio of fantastic images of this Hall of Fame backstop, with one charmingly inscribed to a buddy. We'll begin with that one, a postcard-sized (4" x 6") image of Gabby in his catching crouch, with the inscription, "To my Pall John, here's hoping I'll be in hell making it hot for him, Leo 'Gabby' Hartnett." The ink lightens slightly in the autograph, but the majority of the blue ink remains in NRMT condition. The photo itself has some remnants of tape and glue from a scrapbook, but still displays wonderfully. Another image of the same size of Gabby standing in catcher's gear is in NRMT condition. The third image is a large and magnificent studio shot, featuring a 6" x 8.5" image of Hartnett standing in uniform on a 10" x 14" sheet of high-grade photographic paper. NRMT. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
