Unlined index card signed by Hall of Fame third baseman Frank "Home Run" Baker. PSA has encapsulated the card and certified the signature as "Authentic." Baker inscribed the card "J. Franklin Baker/Philadelphia American League/Base Ball Club" in blue fountain pen, with both his signature and inscription grading 8/10 overall. Baker was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1955, but died in 1963, leaving Hall of Fame autograph collectors just a short eight-year span in which to obtain his signature. As a result, demand for Baker's signature continues to exceed the supply. The index card (4.75x3.25"), which has been slightly trimmed, displays a small crease and adhesive residue on the reverse from having once been mounted in an album.
