    1952-53 Baseball Hall of Famers Signed Postcards Lot of 13 with Young, Speaker. It's nice to have friends in high places, and Christy Walsh was buddies with just about every living star in the baseball pantheon, as is evidenced by the presented lot. These are postcards sent to Walsh indicating consent for inclusion in his "forthcoming SPORT calendar," or to attend a luncheon honoring the great Connie Mack. The full list: Cy Young (with short note detailing his itinerary), Tris Speaker, Connie Mack (2), Bill McKechnie, George Sisler, Carl Hubbell, Lefty Grove, Casey Stengel, Joe McCarthy, AB Chandler, Warren Giles and Ed Barrow. Not a single signature among the dozen presents below a strength of 9/10, and the cards exhibit mailing wear but no condition problems of note. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
