Description



The Gray Eagle's coaching tenure with the Indians began in earnest when he was called upon to help convert Larry Doby from a second baseman to a center fielder. Speaker also suited up informally during the Tribe's early-1950s training camps. But he later suffered a series of heart ailments that led to his death in 1958 at age 70. Here, Speaker's bolder-than-bold, blue-ink signature would be a "10" were it not for faint wisps of smudging. The 5-1/2" x 3-3/8" postcard rates crisp EX-MT. Full LOA from JSA.
