Though slight in stature, compact slugger Mel Ott generated major power in becoming the first NL hitter to reach the 500 home run mark. The offered Ott signed GPC shows “Master Melvin’s” penmanship was as mighty as his batting stroke. Postmarked 7/22/42 at the height of Ott’s career, this autograph request fulfillment signature shows dynamic (“9-10”) potency on a solid (EX-MT) card. Full photo LOA from JSA.
Ott's extremely bold signature is located well away from the request note written at the top of the GPC, making it a simple task for matted display purposes.
