Description

    1930's-40's Baseball Managers Signed Postcards With Casey Stengel, Connie Mack, Clark Griffith & Gil Hodges Lot of 4, PSA/DNA Graded. Four of the top managers in baseball over the 20th Century have penned their signatures to these four postcards/index cards. Connie Mack has signed an index card with the inscription, "Manager, Athletics of Philadelphia, 6/8/32," graded a NM-MT 8 by PSA/DNA. Casey Stengel is also graded a NM-MT 8 by PSA/DNA, on a government postcard, with, "N.Y. Yankees 1949" added to the postally used postcard.

    Clark Griffith has signed a government postcard, stamped and canceled but undated, and the fountain pen signature graded a Gem Mint 10 by PSA/DNA. Finally, a most interesting postcard of Gil Hodges is included. Not only does it pre-date his managerial career, but it actually dates from before his rookie season. Hodges played one game in 1943 and missed 1944, 1945 and much of 1946 due to military service. This postcard was sent by the Sporting News in March of 1945 to his military base, to verify he was receiving his subscription okay. It has been signed at the bottom, "Corp. Gilbert R. Hodges." Truly a remarkable early piece from the future manager. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Authentic.
