DescriptionMark Koenig Signed Postcard - 1927 Yankees #2 Hitter.
Best known for being the last surviving member of the 1927 New York Yankees, Koenig played a dozen years in the majors tallying 1,190 career hits. Batting in front of Ruth and Gering in the famed "Murderers' Row", Koenig scored 99 runs - good for fourth on the team - and hit .285. In the '27 World Series he led paced the squad, hitting .500 and committing no errors in 24 chances at shortstop.
Offered is a 3.5x5.5" postcard that shows Koenig as a member of the Detroit Tigers, where he played in 1930 and '31. Signed in bold blue ballpoint ink, that shows light streaking in the "e" of "Koenig" the postcard shows only light wear with a few points of chipping on the edges. Reverse is blank and clean aside from "MARK KOENIG" written in black ballpoint ink. A great addition to a collection of Murderers' Row signed postcards. Pre-Certified

Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 15 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
