Description

It may not have been obvious to those who saw him stride to the plate but the diminutive Mel Ott was one of the game’s greatest sluggers. At the time of his retirement, Ott was one of only three men to have hit 500 career homeruns, joining Babe Ruth and Jimmy Foxx. Shown here in this 6x9 black and white magazine photograph of Ott with NY Yankees manager Joe McCarthy is a pair of fabulous signatures of two great Hall of Famers. The signatures were penned in black ink with the McCarthy signature (d.1978) grading (“9”) and the Ott signature (d.1958) grading a (“10”). COA from James Spence Authentications.
