1988 Ron Lewis "500 Home Run Club" Signed Poster
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,304
Classic 1988 poster of the eleven then-living members of the elite 500 Home Run Club, by renowned sports artist Ron Lewis, beautifully signed in blue or black Sharpie by Ted Williams, Frank Robinson, Harmon Killebrew, Reggie Jackson, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Mike Schmidt, Ernie Banks, Eddie Mathews, and Willie McCovey. Each player has signed the piece vertically along his respective image, with each signature grading "9" or "10," with the exception of Mays ("6/7"). These posters, which were produced in conjunction with the now-famous 500 Home Run Club signing show held in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in 1988, were offered for sale (unsigned) to patrons for use in obtaining the signatures of all eleven then-living members of the Club pictured on the piece. Obviously, the original owner of this piece was successful in that quest and, presumably, all of the signatures were obtained at that show. The poster (36 x 18 inches) has been matted and framed (covering the white border areas) to total dimensions of 39.5 x 24 inches. A few tiny surface wrinkles are evident (only when viewed at certain angles) and the poster is in apparent Excellent to Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,304
