Amazing hand-colored artist’s proof of Sea Biscuit, the greatest equine story to come out of the American depression. The signature from the tycoon who made Sea Biscuit into an American hero is rendered in black ink and is no doubt one of the greatest signatures yet seen from this legendary entrepreneur and modern icon, as it is signed, “To Mr. Fitz [Sea Biscuit’s original trainer] with best wishes, Charles S. Howard.” Ink is still bold, grading “8” out of a possible 10. The piece is also hand numbered, “185/260” and pencil signed by the artist, “F.B. Voss.” All original frame and backing with original “Sporting Gallery and Bookshop” label still attached. Matted to 15x16”, framed to 23x24”. Print is EX-MT.
