    1951 Honus Wagner "Baseball's Greatest Lineup" Presentational Certificate. At the midway point of the twentieth century, the greatest minds in baseball convened to name "Baseball's Greatest Lineup," choosing the top player at each position to honor at a banquet of baseball luminaries. The panel was comprised of leading sportswriters from each Major League city, chairman Connie Mack and super agent Christy Walsh, each of whom autographs this impressive 12x16" certificate. This example was presented to the winning shortstop, the legendary Honus Wagner, who John McGraw once called "the nearest thing to a perfect player" he had ever witnessed. Short of minimal fading to a couple sportswriter signatures, the certificate presents flawlessly, and serves as the closest thing to a Wagner career tribute artifact that you'll find outside of the halls of Cooperstown. A splendid keepsake with world class aesthetics to match. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
