Two cult figures and tough autographs in the annals of Philliedom. Eddie Waitkus was shot by an obsessed fan, inspiring that plot line in The Natural. Puddin' Head Jones had one of the best baseball nicknames ever, and he was a reluctant signer.


Waitkus: Pencil "8" signature on 2-1/4" x 1" cut adhered to index card


Jones: 4x6 sepia photo (VG with spotting) by Chicago's famous photography tandem Burke & Brace, with Jones' "7-8" personalization and signature
