Featured is a rare signed presentation of a first edition copy of Won In The Ninth by Christy Mathewson. The book has been signed inside the front hardcover by Christy Mathewson in a boldly scripted fashion in a black fountain pen that easily rates a 9/10. The offered example states that it is presentation copy number 217, which falls well within the thought that 250 copies of the book in signed format were made available because the highest number ever encountered is 241.The perfect medium for a “real” signature of one of the finest pitchers the game has ever known. The book itself was published by R. J. Bodmer Company of New York in 1910 and contains 298 pages displaying in about EX+ condition. A stunning relic of baseball featuring the rare signature of Christy Mathewson. LOA James Spence Authentication
