Description



Hailing from Campy's finest statistical season (and his second MVP Award), this nice bust portrait features the artist's handwritten message to legendary Sporting News publisher J.G. Taylor Spink: "Dear Mr. Spink — Just came across this cartoon - was under the impression I had sent it to you right after it appeared in the News on May 13th '53 - The way this guy is slugging you may want to use this idea some time. Best regards, Leo." Measures 10-3/4 x 14-1/4" and shows minor usage wear with light soiling.
