    Description

    1950's Mel Ott Signed Hall of Fame Plaque. Beginning a sad trend in 1958 of New York Giants Hall of Famers perishing in automobile accidents, teammates Frank Frisch (1973) and Carl Hubbell (1988) would likewise suffer mortal injuries behind the wheel. But while the latter two were well into their golden years at the time of their passing, Ott was just forty-nine, and only seven years removed from his Cooperstown induction. As a result, his autograph is by far the toughest of the three, particularly in this format. His blue ink signature is a strong 9/10 on the front of this coveted rarity, which exhibits light corner wear and general toning but no other flaws of note. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
