Type: 1955 Artvue
Signature: MINT 9
Notes: Arguably the nicest Vance example around, this offering last reached the auction block in 2007 when it sold for $3,500. An intriguing vintage pencil notation on the reverse in an unidentified hand alludes to a trade among collectors: "gave him Ed. Walsh / From Byron's collections." Vance was elected to HOF in 1955 and died in 1961. This item has a reserve (estimated value $2,000-$3,000).
