    1957 Bobby "Roderick" Wallace Signed Government Postcard & Index Card. A young Baby Boomer's through-the-mail autograph collecting hobby bears fruit for the modern collectibles market with this great pairing. Dated and postmarked September 11, 1957, the postcard finds the California resident Hall of Famer making note of a depressing event for the Brooklyn collector: "Looks like your Bums will make the big jump out this way. Your loss our gain, eh?" The index card is dated a week later. Each is personalized "To Harris" and signed "Roderick J. Wallace." All ink 9+/10 or better. Also here is young Harris' self addressed envelope, to which Wallace has added his return address with a printed "R.J. Wallace." Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
