Huggins and Scott Auctions enthusiastically presents a collection of government postcards autographed by baseball legends. These vintage cards are all postmarked 1953 or 1954, and the signers are among the greatest players of the 1890s-1950s. Fourteen cards featuring Hall of Famers are offered on an individual basis, each with a full photo LOA from JSA. Two other lots are groupings of Hall of Famers and stars, accompanied by auction LOAs from JSA. Lovingly held by the original collector for the past seventy years, these new to the market autographs are all pleasing examples, and the cards are generally crisp, with moderate cream toning.
Here we have a Cy Young (HOF, d.1955) prominently signed GPC ("8-9"). The postmark stamp is dated 6/30/53, from Newcomerstown, OH. Full photo LOA from JSA.
To view the others GPCs from this collection, please go to our "Baseball Autographs" category, and review the subsection "Baseball Postcards, Index Cards & Cut Signatures".
