    Description

    1939-47 Salutation Exhibits DiMaggio & Greenberg Pair (2) With Rare Post Gazette Backs! Vince Johnson was a highly regarded sports writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. His columns were published under the title "Once Over Lightly". He was a crusader for the improvement of sports in general, often with a sense of honesty that some may not have appreciated. In 1947 he was awarded a medal for "Outstanding Sports Columns" by the National Headliners' Club. Offered are two very rare 1939-47 Salutation Exhibit cards featuring two top HoFers but it is the ads celebrating Vince Johnson printed in blue on the backs that makes these so special. The pair includes Joe DiMaggio (GD/VG) and Hank Greenberg (VG). A must have for the Exhibit specialist and the DiMaggio or Greenberg master set collector. Since the greater Pittsburgh area would have been the lone area of circulation it is no surprise that very few of these are known.
