Description



Edward Trowbridge Collins, Sr., better known to baseball fans as Eddie Collins, is one of the greatest players the game has ever seen. Collins excelled in everything he did, first as a Hall of Fame second baseman for Connie Mack and his $100,000 infield, then as the pillar of morality for the 1919 Black Sox and finally as the general manager of the Boston Red Sox. Always the consummate baseball gentleman, Collins got the nickname “Cocky” not for any perceived arrogance but because he exuded confidence based on sheer ability. Although not very fond of the nickname, Collins accepted the use of it from his close friends. Presented is an Eddie Collins Signed Postcard dated Oct. 8, 1948. The postcard does feature two miniscule spots of paper loss and moderate creasing on the obverse that in no way affects the beautiful (“9-10”) black signature of the Hall of Fame second baseman. The front also has a 1-1/2 x 2” vintage magazine photograph cutout; the reverse exhibits moderate wear and small paper loss spots that in no way affect the bold printing around the address line and stamp. Full photo LOA from JSA.
