    Description

    1939 Hall of Fame Induction Day Real Photo Postcard. Honus Wagner, Grover Cleveland Alexander, Tris Speaker, Nap Lajoie, George Sisler, Walter Johnson, Eddie Collins, Babe Ruth, Connie Mack and Cy Young pose for the photographer's lens at the Grand Opening of the Baseball Hall of Fame, their smiling faces suggesting their happiness at Ty Cobb's tardiness. We have certainly seen similar images in the past, but never on a postcard such as this, so collectors could rightfully assume that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The piece presents very well despite light restoration in upper left corner, and a degree of light paper loss and staining on verso. Definitely far more eye appeal than its technical VG-EX grade would suggest.
