Jimmie Foxx Signed Black-and-White Hall of Fame Postcard

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $2,232.50

Black-and-white (Artvue) Hall of Fame postcard of Jimmie Foxx, signed in blue ink (grading “10”) in the lower margin. Jimmy Foxx is, naturally, one of the most highly prized of all signed Hall of Fame postcards, and this is easily the finest signed postcard example of the legendary slugger we have seen. The classic design of these postcards has always held a special appeal for autograph collectors. In light of the rarity, popularity as a field of collecting, and the display value of signed Hall of Fame postcards, it is almost surprising that single-signed Hall of Fame ball collectors are not well known for also attempting to acquire signed Hall of Fame postcards, especially since they are far less expensive and have such extraordinary display value. Maybe someday they will. This is an exceptional Hall of Fame postcard example signed by the legendary "Beast." Jimmy Foxx passed away in 1967. Spectacular Near Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,232.50
