    Description

    1915 Frank Chance Handwritten & Signed Real Photo Postcard, PSA/DNA Mint 9. Best recalled in baseball history for his participation in the famed Chicago Cubs double play combination and his service as manager of the first New York Yankees team (after officially relinquishing its Highlanders moniker in 1913), Chance was enjoying the first season of his retirement as he sent this postcard to a friend. That's him in the image, sporting a massive necklace of hunted ducks. Verso is postmarked from Glendora, California on February 4, 1915 and reads, in part, "Have been hunting all winter. Have had some fine hunts. Have gained twenty pounds since I got home." All ink and his closing "Frank" signature is rated Mint 9 by PSA/DNA, as noted on the slab in which it resides. Exceedingly rare. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Mint 9.
