Description

    1951 Charles Albert "Chief" Bender Signed Government Postcard. A fellow Carlisle Indian School alumnus of the great Jim Thorpe, Charles Albert Bender provided the bulk of his Hall of Fame services to Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics, where he gained a well-deserved reputation as a clutch performer in the big game. Three years before his passing he graciously fulfilled a fan's autograph request with this penny postcard, adding the date of "1951" to his 10/10 black ink signature. Postmarked "St. Louis, MO., July 14, 1951," the postcard shows light, inconsequential toning. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA for protection and unquestioned authenticity.
