    Description

    1939 Hall of Fame Signed First Day Cover with Cronin, Chandler, Hubbard, Conlan, Lopez, and Coveleski.
    The identity of a sleepy little town in upstate New York was transformed forever on June 12, 1939, the day the ribbon was cut at the newly founded Baseball Hall of Fame on the shores of Lake Otsego. Though Cooperstown had enjoyed some limited fame with its controversial proclamation as baseball's birthplace, never had the eyes of the nation been so keenly focused upon the leafy hamlet until the day that the greatest living ballplayers convened to receive the game's highest honor. This rare first day cover, affixed with one newly released three-cent stamps commemorating baseball's centennial, bears the postmark of that historic date and is autographed six members of the Hall that were inducted in the ensuing decades:

    Joe Cronin, Happy Chandler, Cal Hubbard, Jocko Conlan, Al Lopez, Stan Coveleski

    The cover has been signed on the front in varying inks and all display nicely. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA
