Serious autograph hunters bag a humongous elephant of autograph with this Bill Dinneen (d.1955) signed government postcard. “Deadball Era” pitcher Dinneen enjoyed a fine playing career and went on to become an acclaimed umpire. Rightfully remembered for his stellar 3-win 1903 World Series performance, this baseball lifer went on to officiate in eight “Fall Classics” and the first MLB All-Star Game. Ever regarded as fair and honorable, Dinneen saw fit to bestow a fan with the offered autograph, replying to a request with a signed GPC postmarked “10/24/49”. This rare and important (“8-9”) strength fountain pen signature takes up most of the length of a 5-1/2 x 3-1/4” crisp, light-cream card, which also bears the salutation “With best wishes”, noted as being penned in Dinneen’s hand on the accompanying full photo LOA from JSA.
