1939 Cincinnati Reds Team Signed Baseball Centennial Postage Stamp Display. Sports collectibles meets philately in this attractive oversized display celebrating the National League Champions of baseball's centennial season. The year remains one of the most memorable in baseball history for the debut of Ted Williams, the farewell of Lou Gehrig, and the June 12th Grand Opening of the Baseball Hall of Fame, the same day the US Postal Service released a baseball-themed stamp. The hobby is now populated with quite a few such stamps autographed that year, though these stamps are merely applied to two unlined 10x12" pages with the players signing to the side. Notable signers include Hall of Famers Bill McKechnie, Al Simmons and Ernie Lombardi, and the tragic Willard Hershberger, who would take his own life in a Boston hotel the following year. Twenty-seven signatures appear in total, none any worse than 9.5/10 in strength. Pages are framed with a large team photograph to final dimensions of 27x37". Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
