Collection of eight photos, each signed by the respective Hall of Fame player or players pictured. Unless otherwise noted, all are black-and-white vintage images, but none have been submitted to PSA, so no guarantees can be made with respect to specific photographic Type designations. 1) Kenesaw Landis. Matted magazine photo of Landis, inscribed by Landis in black fountain pen (grading 9/10) at the base of the matting: "Dear Mr. Scott: May you hit over four hundred next year - and many many years - Kenesaw M. Landis November 17, 1925." The magazine photo (3x4") is in Excellent condition. The matting (5x8.75") displays three tack holes and is otherwise in Excellent condition. 2) Billy Terry and Rogers Hornsby. Each player has signed in blue fountain pen upon his respective image. It appears that Terry had some trouble signing initially, and his first attempt has been partially erased. The signatures grade 6/10 or 7/10, but contrast poorly against the background. 10x8" VG, with light surface wrinkles. 3) Harry Heilmann. Baseball Magazine page featuring a photo of Harry Heilmann. Inscribed in green fountain pen (6/10) upon his image: "Harry Heilmann with Best Wishes." 8.5x10.5" VG, with light creases and tack holes in the two upper corners. 4) Rabbit Maranville. Inscribed in black fountain pen (6/10) "To my pal Jack from Rabbit Maranville. 7.5x7.25". Dated stamped "Sep 6 1934" on the reverse. FR-GD, trimmed to its current dimensions with moderate-to-heavy creasing. 5) Mickey Cochrane. Signed in black fountain pen (7/10) near the base. An "American League Service Bureau" credit stamp appears on the reverse. 4.75x6.75". GD-VG, slightly trimmed with a few tiny edge tears and mounting remnants on reverse. 6) Sam Rice. Signed in black fountain pen (8/10) near the base. 6.75x9.75" VG, with a wavy left border and a few light creases. 7) Rube Marquard. Inscribed in black fountain pen (6/10) near the top: "With my very best wishes Mr. Richard 'Rube' Marquard Nov 4/13." This is an illustrated page featuring a cut portrait photo of Marquard affixed in the lower left corner. The inscription is on a cut that has been affixed to the page in the upper right corner. 6.75x9". EX, with a trimmed left border. 8) Chick Hafey. Signed in blue ink (8/10) near the top border. This is a COPY of Hafey's page from the 1933 Who's Who in Major League Baseball book. 7x10" GD-VG.
