    Description

    1950's-90's Baseball Hall of Famers Signed First Day Covers & More Lot of Approximately 250. There is simply no way to fully itemize an offering of this size and variety, so we'll do our best to provide as much information as possible, while advising interested bidders to visit us in Dallas and dig through the collection yourself. The consistent theme is Hall of Fame players, but from there it branches out from single-signed to multi-signed, to all various vintages of FDC signed by players who may or may not have been active when those FDC's were issued. Most FDC's are signed directly, while a small percentage have cut signatures applied to them. Quality is consistent and high throughout--virtually every autograph is 9/10 or better, as is typical for those applied to paper. Fewer than ten are slabbed. About ten have individual LOA's.

    There are multiple examples of most players, and we'll provide some of the highlights, again reminding bidders that the list is very far from comprehensive: DiMaggio, Williams, Mantle,Hubbell, Aaron, Terry, Yount, Niekro, Smith, Herman, Dickey, Spahn, Slaughter, Roberts, Rizzuto, Kiner, Yaz. Most signers are from the autograph show era, but there are exceptions like Baker, Klem, Wheat. Cochrane, Hartnett, Frisch and Clarke. There's a Negro League multi-signed FDC with Leonard, Dandridge, Bell and Johnson, and a great hitters FDC signed by Williams, DiMaggio, Mantle, Mays, Musial, Aaron and more. This only scratches the surface. Enormous break-down value here, far beyond our very conservative pre-auction estimate. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
