    Joe Tinker Signed Magazine Photograph. "These are the saddest of possible words: 'Tinker to Evers to Chance.' Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds, Tinker and Evers and Chance." It was New York City sports columnist Franklin P. Adams, lamenting the Chicago Cubs infield's double-play destruction of his hometown Giants, that would forever link the three Hall of Famers in our collective memory. The legendary shortstop of the equation penned his NRMT black ink signature on a black and white magazine photograph, which was clipped and affixed to a heavy paper backing, almost certainly deriving from a vintage scrapbook. As tough as Tinker's autograph is, the appearance of one on an image casts this offering into yet an even greater realm of scarcity. Entire clipping measures 3.25x6.75" in size, and is free of any noteworthy creases, tears or stains. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
