Description: Frank Chance auto. cut signature. 2 ½”x4” section of unlined paper signed Frank L. Chance. Black fountain pen signature rates 8-9 out of 10. The piece has been affixed to a more rigid paper backing. Best known as the first baseman in theTinker-to-Evers-to-Chance double play combination made famous in the 1910 poem by Franklin P. Adams of the “New York Evening Mail,” Chance was a skillful fielder and hitter, yet he earned special recognition as the Chicago Cubs' inspirational player-manager. He guided the Cubs dynasty, winning four pennants in five years (1906-1910). Chance’s untimely death in 1924 makes his autograph a significant rarity and the key to collectors completing the desirable Tinker to Evers to Chance combination. Finest exemplar of this tough HOF'er that we have handled. Includes LOA from JSA: EX
