    Mid-1930s Hall of Famers Signed Government Postcard Collection (4) Back when it was actually possible, even simple, to get just about any living ballplayer's autograph just by sending a letter, some young fan took advantage of the opportunity by appealing for signatures from the game's greatest. Offered here are some of the fruits of the boy's labor: 1) Charles "Chick" Hafey, postmarked "Jun. 9, 1936." 2) Hazen 'Ki Ki" Cuyler, postmarked "Jun. 6, 1934." 3) George Sisler, postmarked "Apr. 11, 1935." 4) Best of Luck, Sincerely Waite Hoyt, postmarked "May 31, 1934." All are in strong black ink and display brilliantly against the age-toned blank side of their postcards. Cuyler's card has a diagonal vertical crease running through his signature, but it does not detract from the look of the piece. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
