    Description

    1952 Charles "Chief" Bender Signed Photograph & Mailing Envelope. He won almost two hundred games during twelve seasons in service of the Philadelphia Athletics, earning a Cooperstown plaque and Connie Mack's undying gratitude. Here we find the Native American ace in the role of an Athletics coach as he passed along his vast knowledge to a new generation of ballplayers. The black and white photograph on paper measures 7x10" and is faultlessly autographed in black ink, "'Chief' Bender 1952." A second signature appears beneath the "American Base Ball Club of Philadelphia" mailing envelope that once contained this rare signed image. It likewise remains a bold 9+/10. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
