Original c. 1956-57 off-season photograph of Yankee pitcher Don Larsen who was acknowledging his recent perfect game in a signed photograph to teammate Moose Skowron. While he has dated the image to the date of the perfect game, it is not clear when he actually autographed it, but it was clearly while he and Skowron were still teammates as the inscription reads in part, "See You in the Spring!" The photo is a completely vintage 1950's example and the inscription was done in vintage fountain pen. We believe this was signed after the World Series and before the start of the 1957 season, making it quite a find! Larsen only played with the Yankees through 1959 so it clearly dates before that date. There is some wear at the top but it looks great and comes from Skowron's estate.
