Rare Mel Ott 8x10 Signed Photo, PSA Mint 9
Mel Ott Signed 8x10 Photo, PSA Mint 9
Hall of Fame: 1951
The scarcest of the original 500 Home Run Club members, Mel Ott continues to stand out on collectors' wish-lists. The reason is simple: he passed away unexpectedly in 1958 at the young age of 49, the result of an automobile accident. Demand for his autograph simply outweighs its supply in the marketplace.
We were fortunate to find this fully original 8x10 batting pose of Master Melvin in full N.Y. Giants home uniform, taken at the Polo Grounds. The condition is simply exemplary, free of creases, rip, tears tape or other imperfections. But more importantly, the photo is signed by Ott and the autograph is exceptionally large, and graded Mint 9 by PSA/DNA. We have owned just a few Ott signed photos in all our years, this one being the finest by far! Comes with a graded Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA.
