    1941 Baseball Writers & Stars Multi-Signed Presentational Certificate with Babe Ruth. Two weeks into the 1941 calendar, a wide array of baseball figures convened at the Hotel Commodore in New York City to pay tribute to the sons of legendary concessionaire Harry M. Stevens, presenting the brothers with the certificate on offer here to mark the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the hot dog, their father's most celebrated invention. Most of the 100+ signatures are those of sportswriters and broadcasters, and thus unfamiliar to most, but there are several significant exceptions to that theme.

    Hall of Famers and other notables whose signatures join those of the newsmen include Babe Ruth (8/10), Frank Frisch (9/10), Ford Frick (10/10), Ed Barrow (10/10), Larry MacPhail (10/10), Bill Klem (9/10), Red Barber (8/10), George Weiss (9/10), Paul Krichell (9/10), Willard Mullin (9/10), Nat Fleischer (9/10). Certificate exhibits some light creasing, but nothing that causes significant distraction.

    Certificate measures approximately 25x14" and is framed with an original invitation to the event and a photograph (9x19") snapped there. Framed dimensions are 36x46". Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    I thought that Peter Calderon was very pleasant and had a very professional attitude.
