DescriptionCirca 1929 Red Lucas Original Photograph by Charles Conlon, PSA/DNA Type 1.
Grantland Rice was so impressed with Red Lucas that he was moved to wrote a poem about him called "Red Lucas, Ballplayer," which began with "Just a ball player-that's all, he can field, he can pitch, he can hit."
A tremendous all-around player who had the misfortune to play for some terrible teams, Lucas was one of baseball's best control pitchers, had a lifetime .281 batting average, and was good enough defensively that his managers used him as both an infielder and outfielder.
The offered original 6.5x8.5" photo was snapped around 1929, when he finished sixth in the N.L. MVP voting. "Conlon Photo" is written on back along with identification and a "Baseball Magazine" hologram. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. 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) 30 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 30 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 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 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 10:30. 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.
