Description

Six inches shorter, 100 pounds lighter and 15 years older than his star slugger, Miller Huggins ruled over Babe Ruth and the Bronx Bombers with unyielding conviction and unparalleled success. Tragically felled by Pyaemia at the peak of “Murderers Row,” Huggins (d.1929) has one of the most coveted autographs in both Yankees and Hall of Fame circles. This Huggins cut signature is among the boldest we’ve encountered. Executed on an unevenly trimmed sheet of approximately 4-1/8”-long and adhered to a 5x3 index card, Huggins’ blue-ink fountain pen scripting (signed “Miller J. Huggins”) projects (“8-9”) potency. Just below, the signature of “Lawton W. Witt” was composed by Whitey Witt, who played for Huggins and was the last surviving member of the Yankees’ first-ever World Champion team (1923). Full photo LOA from JSA.
