     Hank Gastright and William “Dummy” Hoy, teammates on the 1892 Washington Senators, have signed this cut. Gastright, a pitcher, put together a seven-year career in a time when pitchers were used and discarded with frequency. A short-lived star, Gastright won 30 games in 1890 for the Columbus Solons of the American Association.

     Dummy Hoy was one of the most interesting players of the deadball era, a deaf and mute centerfielder who overcame his handicap to play 14 excellent seasons of pro baseball. Hoy accumulated over 2,000 hits in his career, and was an adept basestealer, notching a career high of 82 in his rookie season of 1888. Hoy lived to the venerable age of 99 and threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the third game of the 1961 World Series.

     Gastright signed the front side of this album page in black fountain pen, writing his name as “H.C. Gastright” and inscribing “Newport Ky” beneath his signature. Hoy has signed the reverse side, also in black fountain pen, as “Wm E. Hoy”, writing “Findlay, Ohio” beneath his signature. This item has been encapsulated and authenticated by PSA/DNA (84043042).
