Encapsulated by BVG and assessed as “Authentic” by BVG. Following a productive 1948 campaign, Jackie Robinson (d.1972) penned this dated 12/16/48 government postcard to a fan in Iowa. Postmarked from Brooklyn, the correspondence includes a signature preceded by a salutation. The autograph presents (“8”) and is well centered. Despite five perimeter pinholes and slight paper loss, the legendary endorsement still displays nicely.
