Autographed 500 Home Run Club Poster with Mantle and Williams
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $840
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 atop his respective image, with each signature grading "9" or "10." Also signed in blue Sharpie ("10") in the lower right corner by the artist Ron Lewis. 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 (38 x 20.75 inches) displays minor surface wrinkles, as well as tape remnants on the reverse from its having once been mounted within a frame. Excellent condition overall. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $840
