    1960's-80's Signed Gold Hall of Fame Plaques Lot of 41. One of the most coveted formats to obtain Hall of Fame signatures on for decades has been the Gold HOF Plaque Postcards. They offer a consistent, matching medium to keep the collection uniform, and the majority of the older HOFers had already signed many of these long ago, making the supply stream fairly solid. However, as members pass away, collectors begin to hoard the examples they find, creating greater scarcity. Offered in this lot is an amazing array of forty-one different signed plaques, all of whom are now deceased.

    Players include Burleigh Grimes, Earl Averill, Gabby Hartnett, Dizzy Dean, George Kelly, Harry Hooper, Jesse Haines, Ford Frick, Edd Roush, Joe McCarthy, Lefty Grove, Stan Coveleski, Joe Medwick, Hank Greenberg, Waite Hoyt, Joe Cronin, Lefty Gomez, Rube Marquard, Lloyd Waner, Max Carey, Charles Gehringer, Carl Hubbell, Bill Dickey, Al Lopez, Billy Herman, Johnny Mize, Duke Snider, Rick Ferrell, Early Wynn, Luke Appling, Joe Sewell, Pee Wee Reese, Warren Spahn, Lou Boudreau, Harmon Killebrew, Bob Lemon, Buck Leonard, Ab Chandler, James "Cool Papa" Bell and Jocko Conlan. Also included is a Red HOF Plaque postcard of Eddie Mathews. Wynn has been postally used, while Frick has writing on the back. Roush has signed both front and back of his card. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
