    1939 Lynn St. John Signed Contract--Rare Basketball Hall of Fame Autograph. He's a legend in Buckeye Nation, the Ohio State head basketball coach from 1911 to 1919 and the school's second athletic director, a position he held for over three decades. For a quarter century, St. John served with basketball inventor James Naismith on the NCAA Rules Committee, and he posthumously joined his former associate as a member of the 1962 Basketball Hall of Fame class. Today he's one of the toughest autographs of those enshrined at Springfield. His 10/10 black fountain pen signature at the bottom of this contract confirms a baseball game between OSU and Michigan State University. Original mailing folds and a corner crease do not affect the flawless signature. 8.5x11". Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
