1942 KC Monarchs Pitching Staff Signed Photograph

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,495.00

Original photograph (8" x 10") of the 1942 Kansas City Monarchs Negro League Champions pitching staff is signed by each of the six pitchers. Included are Hilton Smith, Satchel Paige, Connie Johnson, Jim LeMarque, Booker McDaniels, and Jim Matchet. The signatures are not strong (most grade about a "3"but all are perfectly legible), and in some places have scratched the photo's surface. The key signature on the photo, of recent Hall of Famer Hilton Smith, is also the strongest, grading a solid "7" on a scale of "1 to 10". The photo has Jones Photo Service ink stamp on reverse. The photograph has corner tack holes and some edge and corner chipping, imperfections which in no way detract from the spectacular high quality image. From the estate of Buck Leonard. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $1,495.00
