Tris Speaker Signed Photograph Personalized to Frank Frisch
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $1,610.00
Striking black-and-white original photograph of legendary Hall of Famer Tris Speaker dating from his coaching days with Cleveland during the 1950s, signed and inscribed in blue ink to fellow Hall of Famer Frankie Frisch. The inscription reads, "To: The Great Fordham Flash, With very best Wishes, Tris Speaker." The signature and inscription are virtually flawless, grading "9" on a scale of "1 to 10." Autographed photos personalized from one Hall of Famer to another are extremely rare. This auction includes several examples which have been assembled over a period of years by a dedicated collector. The photograph has been neatly trimmed to its current dimensions (7 x 9 inches), has a few very small surface wrinkles in the background (barely detectable and mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy), and is otherwise in Nr/Mt condition. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,610.00
