    One of the rarest plaques in the hobby!

    1939-43 Eddie Collins Signed Hall of Fame Plaque, PSA/DNA Authentic. No American Leaguer stepped on home plate more often during the first great Philadelphia Athletics dynasty than this man, a key member of Connie Mack's fabled "$100,000 Infield." Eddie Collins paced the Junior Circuit in runs scored every year between 1912 and 1914, blending a scorching bat and blazing foot speed into a potent concoction that would ultimately elevate him to top five career rankings in both hits and stolen bases at the time of his retirement in 1928. Collins would properly enter the Baseball Hall of Fame as a member of the inaugural class of 1939, where he remains one of the Dead Ball Era's most effective and decorated representatives.

    Collins has one of the coolest looking signatures in the hobby, but only about a half dozen are known to exist within the popular Hall of Fame plaque subgenre. This is the rarest of that woefully endangered breed, the sepia five-year format that debuted at the Grand Opening. Collins' blue ink makes full use of the wide lower border area, rating a conservative 8/10. The postcard itself is unused and presents in glorious NRMT condition. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Authentic. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
