Description

By far the toughest of coveted “500 Home Run Club” autographs, Mel Ott’s penning is bold and beautiful on this 1944 New York Giants program page display. Executed in black-ink steel tip fountain pen and adhered to a page from a 1944 New York Giants-themed publication, Ott’s signature projects “perfect 10” strength and clarity. Pictured on the page in a managerial capacity, Ott (d.1958) prompted rival Leo Durocher to proclaim “Nice guys finish last.” Well, not here they don’t! Full photo LOA from JSA.
