Description

Made for each other, Mel Ott and the New York Giants were synonymous for 23 years. For a record 18 straight seasons, Ott paced the Giants in home runs and clubbed 323 of his 511 career circuit clouts at the Polo Grounds. This government postcard is autographed by the Manhattan superstar. Postmarked “May 12 1941” (two days after Ott had launched his 395th career round-tripper), the item is signed by Ott (d.1958) in black-ink steel tip fountain pen. This ultra-tough 500 Home Run Club scripting projects (“9”) potency! Full photo LOA from JSA.
