    1938 New York Giants Signed Program with Mel Ott. Truxton, New York, the birthplace of the great Hall of Fame manager John McGraw, honored its departed favorite son this date with a match between McGraw's former squad and a local team bearing the same Giants nickname. Offered is a program from the August 8th event, picturing Little Napoleon on the cover, which is autographed by seven of the game's participants and attendees. Most notable are Hall of Famers Mel Ott, Travis Jackson and Bill Terry, each of whom called the Polo Grounds home for his entire career. Rounding out the autographs are Hal Schumacher, Frank Snyder, Sam Leslie and Joe Moore. All signatures remain in spectacular condition. The twenty-eight page program is solid and complete, with a center vertical crease from having been folded lengthwise, though this does very little to detract and the crease remains clear of all Hall of Fame signatures. LOA from PSA/DNA.
