Description



Given the uniform consistency of a single pen, all of these blue-ink "7-8" signatures appear to hail from a gathering that pre-dated Ty Cobb's passing in 1961. Home Run Baker and Fred Hutchinson died shortly thereafter. Oh, to be a fly on the wall when these baseball luminaries talked shop and matched wits! Since 7 of the 10 were Cooperstown inductees, it's likely that they congregated at a Hall of Fame Weekend in the 1950s. The Cobb displays beautifully with his trademark flourish of an elaborate underscore. The ball is a creamy-toned unofficial deBeer & Son example.
