Just over a century ago, believe it or not, the terms “Chicago Cubs,” “World Series” and “Dynasty” were synonymous. In fact, it was a columnist from New York, of all places, who lamented in his Baseball’s Sad Lexicon composition of the Cubs superiority over Gotham’s Giants. Headlining that Windy City dominance, shortstop Joe Tinker (d.1948) manned the first leg of the vaunted “Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance” double-play combination. Tinker is the subject of this Joe Tinker Signed Centennial FDC features an (“8”) potency black fountain pen autograph. The mid-grade envelope presents well given its age with light creasing and moderate residue on the reverse of the collectible. According to 1939baseball.com, this cover is of the “Postmaster Cooperstown” variation. “3 cent” baseball centennial stamp appropriately decorates the top right corner, full photo LOA from JSA.
