Rogers Hornsby Autographed Government Postcard.




      
Lot 143. Rogers Hornsby Autographed Government Postcard. Mint 9 signature on a postcard neatly trimmed to 2 ½” x 5 ½” and postmarked 1951. The cancellation stamp touches the tail of the “y” in Hornsby’s last name. Kevin Keating authenticated the signature. Hornsby’s numerous accomplishments in 23 years, primarily as a second baseman, earned him a place in the Hall of Fame in 1942 even though his temperament made him disliked by baseball players and executives. He aided the St. Louis Cardinals in winning a World Championship in 1926, was selected as the N.L. MVP twice, won seven batting titles, was the N.L. home run king twice and led the league in RBI four times. He was the first player to win the Triple Crown twice, in 1922 and 1925. Ted Williams is the only other player to be a two-time Triple Crown hitter. His .3585 career batting average places him second only to Ty Cobb, and his .4235 average in 1924 is the sixth best for a single season in MLB history. Hornsby died in 1963. Current Bid $100.
