    Description

    1934 Kenesaw Mountain Landis Signed Handprint & Related Letter. Just like the famous Babe Ruth handprint that sold for $222,000 in December 2010, and the Connie Mack example likewise for sale in this Platinum Night auction, the offered model documents the hand that put a stop to the Major League careers of "Shoeless Joe" Jackson and the other Black Sox. It's a perfect print, applied to letterhead of "Alice Denton Jennings, Character Analysis." These prints were supplied by baseball icons for Ms. Jennings' pseudoscientific studies suggesting that the lines of the palm reveal personality traits. Landis' 10/10 black ink signature underscores his print, and the page exhibits minor toning at the edges of the 11x8.5" sheet. Also here is Landis' signed letter (9/10) on his official "Baseball" letterhead thanking Jennings for the report of her "findings." Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
