    1956-57 Boston Celtics Team Signed Government Postcard. The mighty Celtics would deliver the first of sixteen NBA titles to Boston this season, topping the St. Louis Hawks four games to three in the NBA Finals. The spectacular talent of that team included both the League's MVP (Bob Cousy) and the Rookie of the Year (Tom Heinsohn), each of whom is present among the eleven 10/10 blue ink autographs on this postcard. The balance of the signatures: Sharman, Nichols, Palazzi, Loscutoff, Hemric, Phillip, Risen, Tsioropoulos and coach Red Auerbach. A November 1956 cancellation from the Boston post office only adds to the appeal. No creases, tears or stains. NRMT. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
