Description



Pre-War Hall of Famer! Pose #478-6 and graded 4 VG-EX by SGC. John Montgomery Ward was not only an immensely talented baseball player, but his principled protection of his fellow players also helped change how the game was staged. The Keystone native studies an opposing pitcher on the offered "bat at ready, looking left" pose. This staged action shot showcases striking surface contrast that is framed by evenly worn corners, pinpoint centering and a crease-free surface. The blank reverse displays only mild foxing. A microscopic wrinkle near the middle right edge prevents an even high assessment.
