    Description

    1925 Honus Wagner Single Signed Baseball. "You can have your Cobbs, your Lajoies, your Chases, your Bakers," once said Hall of Fame manager John McGraw, "but I'll take Wagner as my pick of the greatest." Perhaps best remembered as the face on the most valuable baseball card in the world, the legendary Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop remains a particularly tough autograph despite his many years in uniform, first as a player and later as a coach for the team he loved.

    It was in that coaching role that Wagner was tracked down by a fan at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field to secure the presented relic, inscribed by the Old Dutchman, "July 12-25, J. Honus Wagner, With Best Wishes." Wagner's black fountain pen averages to a solid 7/10, and while the ball is non-official, the black and red stitching perfectly mimics ONL models of the period. A very fine representation of an essential single. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
