Listing Details

A collector named Ed did lots of writing to players in the 1960s. He did rather well, resulting in this nice collection of signed J.D. McCarthy and team issue postcards (with related material). Organized by team, there is hardly any duplication. Many came out of photo albums with lines on the back but otherwise display very well. A comprehensive collection, this includes seven HOFers and a fair number of stars. Better pieces include: T. Aaron (D'82), Adcock, Bamberger, Belanger, Gates Brown (great image), Colavito (2 diff), Durocher, Dick Farrell (scarce, D'77 at age 43), Freehan, Mike Garcia (D'85), Gibson, Hardin (scarce; D'91 at age 47), Minoso, Piersall and Tiant. This collection included a Roger Maris and a Ron Willis, so there may well be some buried treasure here. Either way, it is a very nice collection of its kind. JSA LOA.
