Bill McKechnie Signed Black-and-White Hall of Fame Postcard

Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $1,410.00

Black-and-white (Artvue) Hall of Fame postcard of Bill McKechnie, signed in blue ink (grading “9/10”) in the lower margin. Very few black-and-white Hall of Fame postcards of Bill McKechnie were ever signed by him due to the fact that the Hall ceased issuing them in 1963, just one year after McKechnie’s induction. McKechnie passed away in 1965; thus the window of opportunity to acquire his signature on this card was quite narrow. Both of those circumstances contribute to its significant rarity today. This is an outstanding Near Mint example. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,410.00
