Default National Pickup

On the autograph front, I picked up a 1925 Philadelphia A's team signed ball. Pretty faded signatures...some not legible. Two most clear are a pair of Connie Macks. Also a Cochrane from his rookie year on the sweet spot that would rate adound a 3 out of 10. Not great quality but was inexpensive.

Also a game used final out ball from a 1926 Lefty Grove complete game win.

Vander Meer was a forger!!

Mark,
Yes sir! It makes you wonder how often this actually went on during the 1930's...

Vandy was a giver!

Default I wonder . . .

.

. . . if letter writer George Winter of Lansdowne MD is/was related to former major league pitcher George Winter (born in PA, died in NJ - pitched for Bos_A 1901-1908 & Det_A 1908) ?

Just a thought.

Vincent,
Hmm... That's an interesting thought about the letter being written by George Winter the player. Do you have an example of George Winter's signature to compare it to?
My Vandy fan letter has fan George Winter's signature written twice. Once where he signs the letter at the end and once where he signed the SASE.

If you have the comparative signature, I think we would have your answer.
FWIW, the letter does seem to be penned by an adult...

Thanks,
Scott
