1956 government postcard signed by Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with the signature certified as "Authentic." Robinson has inscribed the reverse of the postcard in blue ink (grading "9"), "Best Wishes/Jackie Robinson." A blue-ink inscription (not in Robinson's hand) below Robinson's signature reads "Played second base for/Brooklyn Dodgers." The front of the post card is addressed to "Charles Smith" and bears a postmark dated "Stamford Conn. Apr. 18 1956." The Brooklyn Dodgers had an off day on April 18, 1956, after having lost their home opener to the Phillies 8-6 the previous day. Obviously, Robinson, who lived in Stamford, Connecticut, took the time to catch up on his fan mail. This is an outstanding Robinson signed postcard dating from the start of his final season in the majors. The postcard (5.5 x 3.25 inches) displays a few small edge tears, as well as a number of moderate creases (none of which affect the signature). In Very Good condition. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
