Two Autographed GPC collections from the 1920s – ‘50s Highlight our June Auction

Early autograph collectors that wrote to famous athletes and celebrities were often kids who just wanted a simple signature from their heroes.  In order to save money and make it easy for the celebrity to respond, the collector would send their famous idol a postcard with the return address already on it.   Then, the celebrity could just sign it quickly and pop it back in the mail box.  Today GPCs are highly desirable as they provide a brief time capsule of where and when the autograph may have been signed.

From the late 1920s to the early 1930s, an enterprising young collector out of Baltimore, Maryland named Nat Mindel would write away to athletes from all sports in hopes that these sporting icons would sign and return his government postcard.  Click here to view the Nat Mindel GPC collection in the Albersheim’s June 2015 auction.

Also in this auction, we are proud to feature GPCs from the James Davis GPC collection.  It’s comprised mostly of baseball autographs obtained from the 1930s – 1950s. Click here to view the James Davis GPC collection in the Albersheim’s June 2015 auction.
