The "most famous mascot in the world," Eddie Bennett was the 1927 New York Yankees bat boy. The rarest signature of all the '27 Yankees, this is one of only two signed photos known and this is by far the best. The number of Eddie Bennett autographs extant can be counted on one hand. Both the autograph and the Type I 8x10" wire photo are authenticated and slabbed by PSA/DNA. The fabulous image shows him leaping in his Yankees bat boy uniform circa 1927. Some chipping to edges is present, but contrast is perfect. The autograph in white is personalized to "George Hogg", perhaps the Titanic survivor. Eddie's path with storied teams is legendary. Working for the league champion 1919 "Black Sox" and 1920 Brooklyn Robins, he moved across the river to Yankee Stadium to work with the Yankees.
