    Description

    1980's Willie Wells Signed Photograph. "In Mexico," fellow Hall of Famer Monte Irvin once said, "he was known as el Diablo, the Devil. The players there would say, 'Don't hit the ball to shortstop, the Devil's out there.'" Though Wells would not live to see his Cooperstown induction, he was always confident he would one day make it, content with the prospect that it would likely come too late for him to enjoy. Here we present a fantastic signed 8x10" from the 1997 inductee pictured in the uniform of the Western Canadian Leagues' Winnipeg Buffaloes, inscribed simply "Best Wishes, Willie Wells." Ink is 9+/10, and the photo exhibits no condition problems. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500.
