    LARGE TED LYONS’ ESTATE SIGNED LOT – INCLUDING SIGNED CAP!. Lyons was literally baseball’s most consistent pitcher for two decades, winning 260 games in his 21 seasons with the moribund Chicago White Sox. Many Hall of Famers, including Ted Williams, consider Lyons the toughest pitcher they ever faced. He was also one of the most intelligent men to ever play the game. This is a significant lot consigned by the Lyons Estate’s original purchaser, including a signed New Era pro-model White Sox cap. Includes: 1) Nineteen signed 3 x 5’s with no salutations 2) 1947 signed gov’t. postcard. 3) Three signed Christmas cards, one still sealed in original envelope, all with no salutations, just signatures. 4) Three signed modern baseball cards. 5) Six signed mid-60’s Carte Blanche credit card vouchers. 6) One dozen misc. pieces of ephemera – most with notations & signatures. 7) Signed gold HOF plaque. 8) Six misc. vintage photos of Ted. 9) Two dozen unsigned photo-postcards used by Lyons to honor autographs. 10) Two Moe Berg obituary clippings (Ted and Moe were lifelong friends). 11) New Era signed Pro-Model "Sox" cap. Lyons remained active as a coach and scout into the late ‘70’s. Cap was probably worn at an old-timers function/game and is in NM condition with a perfect black sharpie signature. LOA Spence and Grad PSA/DNA. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
