Among the small number of surviving signatures from Hall of Fame candidate Jesse Tannehill (1874-1956), most of them date to his later years in the 1940s. Here, however, we have a quite early example, evidently gifted to a relative and later finding its way into the collection of N.L. President John Heydler. The 6" x 8-1/4" composite image is mounted to a 7x9 cabinet backing and features a "7-8" signature on reverse, "To Aunt Nellie / From Jess" (with double-stroked "J"). Full LOA from JSA.
