Default 1927 Yankees Autographed 8x10 Photo

Don't know who owns the original these days but I happened to come across this photo the other day.
Old Time Collector Bill Zekus gave me a copy and no I never owned the original. But Thought it would be helpful to post as an example.

I had his copy made into 8x10's and I used to give these out whenever I would have a speaking engagement regarding old autographs and after I finished the Q&A session
"How do you know an autograph is real ?" ,
"How Much is my Pete Rose worth"? ,
I would hand these out as gifts at the end and there was always a STAMPEDE !!! to get them. I guess cause they were free anyway I always thought it was the finest 1927 Yankees piece I ever saw.

Look how carefully the original was signed--the entire top row at pretty much the same angle, and virtually no overlaps. I know one member here who's gonna cry "foul."

BTW, I saw a photocopy of this photo in one of the files at the HoF library. Perhaps they own the original.

I've always loved this photo, signed or unsigned. It's still weird to see Hooks as a coach for the Yanks that year - he's always a Giant to me!

i believe i know but i am going to double check first. About 4 years ago this went at auction and sold for 90,000 plus, and there is quite a nice scan of it on the internet too.

That is a different Hooks Wiltse, not THE Hooke Wiltse.

From SABR

In 1925 Miller Huggins brought him back to New York as pitching coach of the Yankees, just in time for Babe Ruth's bellyache to mire the team in the second division. Wiltse retired from baseball after spending 1926 back in the International League with Reading.


This is a jim wiltse or wiltsie who had a tryout as a pitcher in 1927, he didnt make the team, he took the moniker "hooks" in tribute to george wiltse.

Why did Hooks Wiltse spell his last name "Wiltsie"? Was that the correct spelling?

I'll cry foul. Am I the only one that finds it interesting that Hooks Wiltse could not spell his own name?

Disregard for me as well. I didn't realize that there were two guys known as Hooks with different spellings for the last name.

David, just tell us who you are trying to pick a fight with. I mean, as long as it's obvious that you are trying to dredge one up, you might as well put on your gloves and come out in the ring. Was there just too much peace in your life?

Wasn't thinking of you at all, Scott. (In fact, I never think of you.)

What a truly puerile a**hole you are, Richard. You always have to stick your nose in, for absolutely no reason.

("A huh a huh... he said 'social misanthrope.' A huh a huh." Which one are you Richard? Beavis or Butthead?)
