    Description

    1979 Richard Nixon Signed Original Photograph. The disgraced Commander in Chief is snapped in happier days, beneath a shower of confetti, though we aren't certain what the event pictured may have been. His signature at upper left rates 9/10 and is underscored with his handwritten "7-29-79" date. Photo is 7x9". Letter of provenance from Bruce Schworck. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.


    The Ernie Schworck Collection


    With a camera around his neck and a spirit of adventure in his heart, renowned photographer Ernie Schworck spent three decades in the employment of United Press International (UPI), aiming his lens at the most famous figures of twentieth century sport and politics. The collection that follows focuses primarily on the former, Schworck's Los Angeles residency making him a familiar face at Dodger Stadium and Anaheim Stadium. He's best remembered for his creation of some of the most famous photographs of legendary southpaw Sandy Koufax ever captured, images that he populated with hand-notated game used balls that served as living captions for no-hitters, World Series victories and other historic achievements. Schworck wisely retained many of these baseballs for his personal collection, and they make their hobby debut in the lots that follow. Several are accompanied by the photos for which they were created, and all include a letter of provenance from the Schworck family.
