A five-time batting champion and leader of the eponymously named Cleveland “Naps,” Hall of Famer Napoleon Lajoie (d.1959) is the subject and endorser of this vintage photo postcard. The souvenir features a sepia-toned likeness of Lajoie in street clothes on the steps of a building entrance. On the lower white border, he has signed “Larry Lajoie” and inscribed “9-3-53” in blue-ink steel tip fountain pen. The widely sought endorsement projects (“8”) potency, with ink migration preventing higher assessment. Accompanying is a full photo LOA from JSA.
