Description

Bold fountain pen signature and inscription, "To Barbara, From Billy Southworth Boston Braves 1946," penned when Southworth was in his first season as manager of the Boston Braves. A very bold signature, grading ("9/10") on an approximately 5 x 7 inch vintage photo. Billy Southworth died in 1969, before there was even an organized hobby, and was posthumously elected to the Hall of Fame in 2008. Therefore, examples of his signature are extremely scarce, especially those of when he was in uniform. A beautiful high-grade example. Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder.
