    1934 Mel Ott Signed News Photograph. The man who made the 500 Home Run Club a trio gazes directly into the photographer's lens for this spectacular portrait of a slugger in his prime. A treasure in its original format, this 5x7" masterpiece is enhanced by a 9/10 fountain pen signature at the sternum, resulting in one of the best Ott signed photos in the market. Reverse is stamped "Associated Press Photo" and "Sep 29, 1936," while a handwritten notation dates the shot to "Oct 1934." Photo itself presents without any visual distraction. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
