1987 Hall of Fame Induction Day Signed Photo Including Ted Williams
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $705.00
Set against the scenic backdrop of lake Otsego in Cooperstown, New York, this 14 x 11-inch color photo captures all of the Hall of Fame members and League officials present at the 1987 Baseball Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies. Thirty-one individuals are pictured here, all of whom are identified in white lettering along the base of the photo. The photo has been matted and framed, and the matting has provided the venue for the black marker signatures of twenty-nine of the thirty-one members present. The only two individuals who have not signed the matting are Roy Campanella (his handicap prevented him from signing) and Ed Stack, then President of the Hall of Fame. Featured here are the signatures of Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, Billy Williams (in blue marker), Bart Giamatti (President of the National League), Ray Dandridge, Bill Dickey, Al Lopez, Ralph Kiner, Lefty Gomez, Catfish Hunter, Rick Ferrell, Joe Sewell, Enos Slaughter, Bob Lemon, Johnny Mize, Stan Musial, Charlie Gehringer, Happy Chandler (former Baseball Commissioner), Warren Spahn, Robin Roberts, Lou Boudreau, Jocko Conlon, Pee Wee Reese, Bobby Brown (President of the American League), Willie Mays, Judy Johnson, Monte Irvin, Ernie Banks and Peter Ueberroth (then Commissioner of Baseball). Signatures range in grade from "8" to "10," averaging "9." This is an attractive and extremely desirable Hall of Fame signed piece, especially considering the fact than nearly two-thirds of the individuals pictured here are no longer with us. Ideal for display. Framed to total dimensions of 22 x 18 inches. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $705.00
