DescriptionRube Marquard Signed Photograph Lot of 3.
Compared favorably to Rube Waddell by a writer as he made his up through the minor leagues, Richard William Marquard adopted the nickname "Rube" as well. In 1908 the New York Giants purchased the lefty hurler for a then outlandish $11,000. It took a few seasons until Marquard found his legs, but in '11 he led the National League in strikeouts, in '12 he led the NL in wins, and in '15 he threw the 74th no-hitter in baseball history. Retiring after the 1925 campaign, it would take him 46 more years to gain entry into the halls of Cooperstown, with a candidacy that was back on recounting of stories in an interview for the book The Glory of Their Times.
Offered is a trio of 8x10" photographs that have each been signed in black ink by the Hall of Famer. Light-to-moderate wear is exhibited throughout all three, but the signatures are not impacted. Pre-Certified
Guide Value or Estimate: $200 - up.

Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 15 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
