    Description

    1939 Herb Pennock Signed Baseball Centennial First Day Cover. Postmarked from Cooperstown, NY the day of the Baseball Hall of Fame ribbon cutting ceremony, this highly collectible first day cover is made all the more desirable by the addition of a splendid blue fountain pen signature of the Hall of Famer who got the win that gave New York its first World's Championship ever. The Squire of Kennett Square signs the front in 9/10 blue fountain pen on a straight line with "Pitcher" below in pencil which was put in place by the autograph seeker to guide Pennock. 1983 Ruth first day of issue added later. COA from SGC. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
