    1939 Mordecai Brown Signed First Day Cover, PSA/DNA Mint 9. One of the best things to come from the 1939 Baseball Centennial is the plethora of signed First Day Covers from top notch Hall of Fame players. Certainly the first five inductees into the Hall of Fame make up the lion's share of these, but many fans used this medium to acquire other future Hall of Famers both during and after the Centennial. This lot includes a nice Cooperstown-canceled "A Century of Baseball 1839-1939" FDC with a Mordecai "Three Fingers" Brown signature.

    With 239 victories and a 2.06 lifetime ERA, Brown made the Hall of Fame himself in 1949. His nickname comes from the result of a corn shredder incident at age seven, which Brown credits as giving him a firmer grip on the ball for better spin. Written in vintage fountain pen, the signature grades a pleasing 9/10 while the envelope itself exhibits one small one inch crease away from the autograph. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA for protection and unquestioned authenticity.
