About This Item

Washington Senators third baseman, debuting in 1922 and retiring in 1939. Large bold signature in blue fineline, heavy stock 5" X 3" card, n.p., 1971 August 20. Fine. With original envelope. Accompanied by a superb original black-and-white 1944 news agency glossy photograph (International News Photo), 8½" X 6½". Original mimeographed newsprint text sheet present. Titled "Vice Pres. Wallace Tosses Out First Ball," this text reads in part: "Vice Pres. Henry Wallace throws out the first ball at the game between the Washington Senators and the Philadelphia Athletics opening the 1944 season.... Vice Pres. Henry Wallace and Ossie Bluege, Manager of the Wash. Senators." Standing alongside the ball-throwing veep is a grinning Bluege. A scarce and desireable vintage image.
