Original pencil-on-paper artwork, created in 1991 by noted sports artist J. M. Amore, signed in black Sharpie by thirty-three Hall of Fame players, seventeen of whom are deceased. The evocative artwork pictures the front of the Baseball Hall of Fame, above which, in the clouds, are portrait images of the first five inductees into the Hall: Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, and Christy Mathewson. Signed and dated "JM Amore '91" in the lower left corner. The thirty-three Hall of Fame signers represented here are Mantle, Stargell, Carlton, Killebrew, Irvin, Brock, B. Robinson, Hunter, Berra, Doerr, Aaron, Wynn, Fingers, B. Williams, Mathews, Musial, Rizzuto, Feller, Roberts, Palmer, Kaline, Marichal, Newhouser, Perry, Snider, Ford, Dandridge, Jenkins, Herman, F. Robinson, Slaughter, Kell, and B. Gibson. All of the signatures are boldly executed and grade "10." This is an extremely attractive display piece, with all of the signatures contrasting exceptionally well against the light background. The artwork (16 x 20 inches) is in Near Mint condition and has been matted and framed to total dimensions of 23.5 x 27.5 inches). LOA from James Spence/JSA. SOLD FOR $480
