The clinics featured many famous sports personalities of the day, who volunteered their time to instruct youngsters on the finer points of the game, and routinely signed these souvenir cards for attendees. The card (4.25 x 2.75 inches), which was issued to "Bernard Solomon of Brooklyn, N.Y.," displays a number of moderate-to-heavy creases, as well light staining in the lower right corner. In Good to Very Good condition overall. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,500++.
