The crown jewel of Orlando Carmichael’s first day cover collection could only be the most iconic autograph on the market today, that of the famous baseball pitcher, slugger and cultural icon known as George Herman “Babe” Ruth (d.1948). A single-signed Ruth keepsake can take an autograph collection to the next level in just one item. “The Bambino” is the subject of this Elmer Flick Signed Centennial FDC which features an absolutely stunning blue steel-tip fountain penning reading “Babe Ruth” (“9” potency). Considering that Carmichael is the only known collector of first day covers, this is your chance to own a unique Babe Ruth 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.
