1937 KiKi Cuyler Signed George Burke Photo

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440

Original George Burke portrait photo of Kiki Cuyler, boldly inscribed in blue fountain pen by Cuyler: "To A. H. Russell/Sincerely/'Ki Ki' Cuyler/Aug 3 1937." Both the inscription and signature grade "9/10." Burke's credit stamp appears on the reverse. Original George Burke photos have always been highly prized by collectors. Signed examples (especially of Hall of Famers) are among the most desirable, especially those dating to the player's active major league career, such as this one. Cuyler has always been a particularly difficult Hall of Fame autograph to find (let alone on a high-quality item such as this), in part because of his very early passing at the age of 52, in 1950. The photo (4 x 6 inches) displays a minor diagonal crease in the lower left corner, light corner wear, and a small area of surface paper loss on the reverse. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. LOA from James Spence/JSA.

SOLD FOR $1,440
