Description

Dubbed “The Beast” and “Double X,” Jimmie Foxx was said to have “muscles on his muscles.” As his fence-clearing career neared the end, Foxx signed this government postcard. Postmarked “1941” in Boston, the 5-1/2 x 3-1/4” relic is signed on the blank side by Foxx (d.1967) in graphite pencil. Among the most fleeting of “500 Home Run Club” signatures, this one projects (“7”) strength and clarity. Full photo LOA from JSA.
