Description

    1939 Eddie Collins Signed Hall of Fame Grand Opening First Day Cover, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8. The only man to take the field in both of Connie Mack's World Championship dynasties, Collins joined his former skipper on the dais as a member of the Hall of Fame's inaugural class. His black fountain pen signature is gorgeous here, arguably even finer than its lofty PSA/DNA rating, applied to a cachet picturing Abner Doubleday Field.

    This first day cover is one of of eleven consigned to this auction by the son of the gentleman who collected Baseball Hall of Fame signatures in person and through the mail between 1939 and the 1950's. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - up.
