Ron Santo Signed "Old Timers Game" 8x10 Program (JSA COA) Chicago Cubs vs Braves



Photo measures 8" x 10" and has been hand-signed in blue felt-tip pen by Ron Santo (D. 2010, Chicago Cubs, HOF).

Santo died on December 3, 2010 in a hospital in Arizona, due to complications from bladder cancer  and diabetes. Santo had lapsed into a coma on December 1. A funeral mass was celebrated at Holy Name Cathedral on December 10, where Santo's casket was carried in by former teammates Ernie Banks, Fergie Jenkins, Randy Hundley, Glenn Beckert, & Billy Williams draped with the No. 10 flag that flew over Wrigley the day his number was retired. He was eulogized by his longtime broadcast partner Pat Hughes, along with Cubs owner Tom Ricketts and MLB Commissioner  Bud Selig. Following the service, the procession paused outside Tribune Tower, home of WGN Radio, before heading north to circle Wrigley Field, starting at third base. Santo was later cremated and his ashes scattered on the field at the Friendly Confines.

On August 10, 2011, Santo was memorialized and "immortalized" at Wrigley Field with the presentation of a statue in his likeness. The statue is a portrayal of a young Santo playing defense at third base, leaning to his right while throwing a ball.

The lot / autograph(s) includes an official James Spence Authentication (JSA) hologram and matching COA for authenticity purposes.
