    1940 Play Ball Mel Ott #88, Signed. Five years later, Master Melvin would hit the 500th home run of his career, joining Babe Ruth and Jimmie Foxx in the sport's most prestigious slugging club. Ott remains the toughest autograph of the trio, and we can't recall the last time we saw him on a trading card. His blue fountain pen signature rates a solid 8/10 on his entry from the popular 1940 Play Ball set. Some creasing is apparent, as is minor paper loss on reverse, but the overall aesthetics remain strong. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
