#8427 - Mel Ott Tremendous Original 1945 Wire Photo with Iconic High Leg Kick Estimate: $500+

Mel Ott was the third member of the 500 home run club, and first National League player to accomplish the feat. Although slight in stature at 5 foot 9, Ott used a very high leg kick to generate the power to hit 511 career home runs. This approximately 7 x 9 inch photo shows Ott in mid-kick, a fantastic image exhibiting tremendous clarity and contrast. The reverse has various editor markings in standard grease pencil, with two significant date stamps. The first, “Jun 08 1945,” was just prior to Ott hitting his 500th home run on August 1, 1945, while the second date, “November 22, 1958,” was the day after Ott died from injuries sustained in a car crash. These two dates indicate this photo was used across the country in featured articles about Ott. Very high grade and classic photo of Hall of Famer Mel Ott, featuring his iconic high leg kick, and used for two significant moments of his life.
