I have been a full time autograph & memorabilia dealer since 1982. WAHOO SAM CRAWFORD Black and white Hall of Fame plaque postcard. Signed on the front light bottom portion in bold fountain pen. Crawford also signed the reverse To Ricky, with all good regards Wahoo Sam Nov 29th, 1961.
Great condition overall with very minor sliver of barely noticeable matting tape at the far top edge. Comes with an unsigned 8x10 photo of Crawford for display. Crawford played in the majors with the Cincinnati Reds in 1899.
He played for the Reds until 1902. Taking advantage of the competition for players between the National League and the then-ascendant American League, Crawford then joined the Detroit Tigers and played for Detroit, primarily in right field, from 1903 to 1917.
He was one of the greatest sluggers of his era, leading his league in home runs twice and in runs batted in three times. He still holds the MLB record for most career triples with 309, a record never likely to be broken. Inducted into the Baseball Hall Of Fame in 1957 he died in 1968.
