As Hall of Fame autograph collectors are well aware, Ross Youngs' signature is so elusive and so prized that even a mere signed index card sold at auction for over $10,000 a few months ago. But we dare say that a more intriguing Youngs autographed piece has never emerged than this one: a whimsical Giants partial team photo from an apple orchard (!) with Youngs providing the black-ink "8-9" captioning of his last-name signature and the names of his fellow G-Men plus the local proprietor: "The Owner / Youngs / McMullen / Scott / Hartley / Farrell / Frisch / Kelly / Lindstrom / Greenfield." There are 4 HOFers in all as the teammates pose with their bounty in the years just after the Giants' string of four straight pennants. The amusing 8x10 International News photo rates EX with routine perimeter wear from newsroom usage. Full LOA from JSA.
