Hall of Fame Autograph Collection in Framed Displays (8)

Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $2,115.00

This collection of eight Hall of Fame cut signatures, representing seven different players, is notable both for the quality and scarcity of the names included (all are scarce with the exception of Feller and Lloyd Waner) and for their presentation. All but one of the cuts have been matted and framed together with likenesses of the respective players, and the group as a whole could serve as the basis for an impressive wall display (one cut is only matted, but not framed). 1-2) Larry Lajoie (two separate cuts). The first is on a 3 x 5-inch postcard signed "Larry Lajoie" in black ink (grading "9/10"). Lajoie has also added the date ("7-28-50") and a salutation ("Good Luck") below his name. A small portrait image of Lajoie, cut from a newspaper, is affixed to the postcard. Matted and framed together with 7.5 x 9-inch non-vintage photo of Lajoie to total dimensions of 12.5 x 19 inches. The second example is on a 4.25 x 1.5-inch section of a postcard signed "Larry Lajoie" in black ink ("9/10"). Matted and framed together with a 7.25 x 5.5 colorized non-vintage photo of Lajoie in uniform. Total dimensions: 13 x 14 inches. 3-4) Paul and Lloyd Waner (each on a separate cut). Each cut measures 3 x 1 inches. The Paul Waner signature is scripted in black fountain pen ("8"). The Lloyd Waner signature has been penned in blue ink ("10"). The cuts have been matted and framed together with a 7.5 x 13-inch non-vintage photo of the pair posing together in uniform. Total dimensions 13 x 21 inches. 5) Rogers Hornsby. Signed "Rogers Hornsby" in black fountain pen ("10") upon a 4.25 x 2-inch sheet (a small diagonal tear in the sheet runs through the "H" and "n" of "Hornsby"). Matted together with an 11 x 14-inch non-vintage photo of Hornsby and a Perez-Steele Hall of Fame postcard of Hornsby. Total dimensions: 14 x 18 inches. 6) Ed Walsh. Signed "Ed A. Walsh" in black ink ("8/9") on a 4.25 x 1-inch sheet. Matted and framed together with a Perez-Steele Hall of Fame postcard of Walsh to total dimensions of 7.25 x 11.5 inches. 7) Tris Speaker. Signed "Tris Speaker" in black fountain pen ("9") on a 3.5 x 2.75-inch sheet. Matted and framed together with a modern Sporting News baseball card of Speaker to total dimensions of 8.5 x 10.5 inches. 8) Bob Feller. Signed "Bob Feller" in black marker ("10") on a 3 x 1.5 inches. Matted and framed together with an 8 x 10-inch non-vintage photo of Feller. Total dimensions: 12 x 17 inches. With the exception of the Hornsby cut as noted, all of the items are in apparent Excellent to Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 8 cut signatures. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $2,115.00
