Circa 1927 Rogers Hornsby Signed Baseball Magazine Premium
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,304
Circa 1927 Baseball Magazine premium of Rogers Hornsby, inscribed in blue ink, "To Loren/Best Wishes/Rogers Hornsby." Both the personalization and signature grade "9" and contrast well against the sepia background. Baseball Magazine premiums were issued between the years 1910 and 1957. The fact that this particular photo of Hornsby pictures him as a member of the Giants indicates that it dates to 1927 or later (Hornsby only played with the Giants in 1927). The premium (8 x 10.5 inches) has a few creases, three notebook holes along the left border (all of which are torn, with one repaired by tape on the reverse), minor edge tears, and a few small pieces of tape on the reverse. In Good condition overall. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,304
