Vintage autograph-album page, beautifully signed in black fountain pen (grading "9") by Hall of Fame outfielder Hack Wilson. This sheet was removed from a 1920s autograph album that was originally compiled by our consignor's father. (The Babe Ruth and Eddie Bennett signed album pages in this auction also originate from the same book.) Wilson died in 1948 at the age of forty-eight, but wasn't elected to the Hall of Fame until 1979, which has resulted in the rarity of his signature today. This is an outstanding example made all the more desirable by the fact that it sits alone on the page. The sheet (5 x 3.75 inches) displays light toning and a slightly rough left border from having been removed from the album. In Excellent to Mint condition overall. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
