Sam Baugh Cut Signature Matted with Photograph Certified by JSA James Spence Authentication

Description: JSA Sam Baugh Cut Signature Matted with Photograph. This is a very nice cut signature matted with a photograph of Baugh going to throw a football. The entire piece measures 8 x 10 inches. As expected, Baugh was drafted in the first round (sixth overall) of the 1937 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, the same year the team moved from Boston.[10] He signed a one-year contract with the Redskins and received $8,000, making him the highest paid player on the team. He is credited for making the forward pass an integral part of the offensive play in the NFL. During his rookie season in 1937, Baugh played quarterback, defensive back, and punter, set an NFL record for completions with 91 in 218 attempts and threw for a league-high 1,127 yards. He led the Redskins to the NFL Championship game against the Chicago Bears, where he finished 17 of 33 for 335 yards and his second-half touchdown passes of 55, 78 and 33 yards gave Washington a 28?21 victory. His 335 passing yards remained the most ever in a playoff game by any rookie QB in NFL history until Russell Wilson broke the record in 2012. The Redskins and Bears would meet three times in championship games between 1940 and 1943. In the 1940 Championship game, the Bears recorded the most one-sided victory in NFL history, beating Washington 73?0. After the game, Baugh was asked what would have happened if the Redskins' first scoring drive had resulted in a touchdown. He shrugged and replied "What? The score would have been 73-7." Baugh's heyday would come during World War II. In 1942, Baugh and the Redskins won the East Conference with a 10?1 record. During the same season the Bears went 11?0 and outscored their opponents 376?84. In the 1942 Championship game, Baugh threw a touchdown pass and kept the Bears in their own territory with some strong punts, including an 85-yard quick kick, and Washington won 14?6,

Ernie Lombardi Cut Signature Matted with a Photograph Certified by JSA James Spence Authentication

Description: JSA Ernie Lombardi cut signature matted with a photograph. This is a very strong signature with a red and white double matting theme. Piece measures 8 x 10 inches. Ernesto Natali "Ernie" Lombardi (April 6, 1908 ? September 26, 1977), was a Major League Baseball catcher for the Brooklyn Robins, the Cincinnati Reds, the Boston Braves and the New York Giants during a Hall of Fame career that spanned 17 years, from 1931 to 1947. He had several nicknames, including "Schnozz", "Lumbago", "Bocci", "The Cyrano of the Iron Mask" and "Lom". Bill James called him "the slowest man to ever play major league baseball well." The fact that he was so slow spoke to what an outstanding hitter Lombardi was. The Schnozz was a career .306 hitter despite infields playing very deep for the sloth-like baserunner. He is listed at 6'3" and 230 lbs, but he probably approached 300 lbs towards the end of his career. He was also known as a gentle giant and this made him hugely popular among Cincinnati fans.
