Description

Though not necessarily the most potent double play combination of its time, Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance was certainly the most famous thanks to its inclusion in the poem known as “Baseball’s Sad Lexicon.” The mercurial HOF second baseman Evers (d.1947) is the subject of this Johnny Evers Signed Centennial FDC features an (“8”) potency black fountain pen autograph”. The mid-grade envelope presents well given their age with light creasing and moderate residue on the reverse of the collectible. According to 1939baseball.com, this cover is of the “Anderson” variation, which is by far the most coveted of all of the styles released in 1939. The rare cover depicts “Major General Doubleday” as well as the National Baseball Museum and Doubleday Field. “3 cent” baseball centennial stamp appropriately decorates the top right corner, full photo LOA from JSA.
