The only other known signed example of this classic shot was auctioned in 2014 for $2,500. But that one was personalized and undated, whereas the beauty offered here begins straightaway with the signature (jet-black "8-9"), while also boasting both the year and Wagner's position: "J. Honus Wagner / Coach / 1940." Master photographer George Burke captured every ounce of Wagner's humanity with this intimate, touching portrait of the 66-year-old Flying Dutchman. Burke's official stamping and filing caption appear on the 3-1/2 x 5-1/2" photo's reverse. EX condition (minuscule pinhole at top center) with spectacular image clarity. Full LOA from JSA.
