Noted early autograph collector Jim Armstrong made these period enlargements from original snapshots at spring training, and then he had them signed at a later date. Measuring approximately 7x9 to 8x10, they are on heavy-stock studio paper with reverse notations of Florida spring-training locales. Signatures range from "6-10", averaging "7-8", and condition is EX with perimeter wear. Some images are blurry either because of the original snapshot or because of the enlargement process.


Includes: Max Wright (smeared), Johnny Logan (GD), Andy Pafko, Barry Latman, Roland Sheldon, Rip Coleman, Wilson Parsons, Cookie Lavagetto (smudge), Gus Bell (also signed by Armstrong), Billy Pierce, Bob Purkey, Joe Jay, Jay Hook, Bob Meisner, Rich Barry/Ralph DiMaglio, Bud Zipfel, Jim Burton, Ed Anderson. Auction LOA from JSA.


There is also an unsigned photo of Home Run Baker at the 1957 Hall of Fame Induction ceremony.
