Rare find. Cut signature from baseball's original home run king, John Franklin Baker. Frank "Home run" Baker led the American League in home runs for four consecutive seasons, 1911-14. The Philadelphia A's slugger never hit more than 12 home runs in any of the aforementioned seasons, but this was in baseball's dead-ball era, and Baker, a third baseman who later played for the New York Yankees, was the best home run hitter of this era. Signature is neatly written in black ink from a fountain pen and appears to have been cut from a check. JSA/LOA.
