    Description

    1907 Morgan Bulkeley Signed Cut. Desirable on many levels, this Bulkeley signature will appease the Civil War aficionado for his service in the Union, the political collector for his two terms as Connecticut Governor and U.S. Senate term, and the baseball fan for his early role in the sport. Bulkeley formed the Hartford Dark Blues baseball club in 1874. This and other clubs morphed into the National League in 1876, at which point Bulkeley was named the first President of the league. Although only lasting in this position for a single year, he was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1937.

    This very difficult autograph is signed in 9/10 flowing fountain pen with the notations of "Conn May 23/07" added underneath. There are two small spots of ink smears on the notations, but none on the pristine autograph itself. The verso of the card has had later notations added regarding his positions held. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA.
