Photo of Honus Wagner as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates, taken by noted baseball photographer George Burke, signed by the Hall of Fame shortstop on the front. Wagner has inscribed the photo “Hello Charles/from/J. Honus Wagner” in green fountain pen (“9/10”) across his image. Burke’s red credit stamp, reading “Geo Burke/847 Belmont Ave./Chicago,” appears on the reverse, along with a few additional typed and handwritten notations, including Wagner’s name. Wagner is pictured here as a coach with the Pirates, sometime during the 1930s or 1940s. This is one of only five Burke photos signed by Wagner we have seen and the first we have offered. The photo (4 x 6 inches) remains in Excellent to Mint condition. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Pre certified by Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
