1933 Hack Wilson Signed Who's Who in Baseball Page

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,540.50

The 1933 hard-bound edition of Who's Who in Baseball, which features beautiful studio portraits and full-page biographies of every Major League player, has long been hailed as one of the most attractive baseball books ever produced. Autograph collectors in particular took a special liking to the book, for the player pages were ideally suited for acquiring signatures. Offered here is the result from one successful request by an early autograph collector: a signed example of Hack Wilson's page from the 1933 Who's Who in Baseball. Wilson has flawlessly signed the page, "Lewis 'Hack' Wilson," in black fountain pen across his image, with the signature grading "10." This is not only the first Hack Wilson signed Who's Who page we can remember seeing but also the first we have ever offered. The page (8.5 x 11 inches) displays three small edge tears (one in the left border and two in the right border), plus a minor corner crease in the upper right (most of the flaws could be easily matted out if framed). In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,540.50
