In 1946 Mel Ott (d.1958) became the first NL player to surpass the 500 home run mark. He became the NY Giants player-manager in 1942 and his final season in an MLB uniform came in 1948. "Master Melvin" is seen at the end of his Giants career in this photo page taken from a 1948 sports magazine. Regarded as relatively small for a power hitter, Ott lights up this crisp and vibrant page with a big smile and you'll be smiling big too, when you walk away with this twice-signed relic. Ott has signed and personalized the photo with ("9") potency. Full photo LOA from JSA.
The reverse side of the photo contains a name identifier which is pictured.
