Lot # 761 (of 1137)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Circa 1932 Lefty Grove Signed George Burke Photo

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $711

Large-format (8 x 10.75 inches) photo of Lefty Grove, taken by noted photographer George Burke, signed by Grove on the front. Grove, who is pictured as a member of the Philadelphia Athletics, has flawlessly inscribed the photo in black fountain pen (grading "10"), "To My Friend, With Best Wishes/Ben McConnic/From/Lefty Grove." Burke's credit stamp appears on the reverse. The photo displays five tiny insect holes in the central image area that have been ameliorated by taping a similar colored piece of photographic paper on the reverse to cover them, thereby making them much less noticeable. A sixth insect hole, along the bottom border, has been covered by the matting. Aside from the aforementioned condition flaws, the photo is Near Mint condition and has been matted and framed to total dimensions of 12.75 x 16 inches. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $711
