Signature from Bauer signed with "Best Wishes"
Autograph sentiment signed: "Best Wishes/Hank Bauer", 5½x2½. Clipped from postal card. 4-cent U.S. Coast Guard imprinted postage, postmarked Baltimore, Maryland, date illegible but 1960s. Addressed in unknown hand to a collector in New Jersey. Henry Albert "Hank" Bauer (1922-2007) didn't give away runs or make mental mistakes, and he had a fierce determination to win. Bauer collected nine World Series checks while with the Yankees. A solid hitter with both power and speed, Bauer started three straight All-Star games (1952-1954), and he hit 26 HRs in 1956 and 18 first-inning leadoff HRs in his career. Bauer hit a three-run triple in the finale of the 1951 WS, and he secured the 4-3 win over the Giants with a sliding catch in right field as the would-be tying run was streaking home. From 1956-1958, Bauer set a WS record with a 17-game hitting streak. He was eventually traded to the A's in the deal that brought Roger Maris to New York. Bauer later managed the Orioles to the 1966 World Championship. Ink slightly smudged at the "k" of Hank. Lightly creased at upper left blank margin and corner. Lightly soiled with faint stains across. Irregular edges. Ink stamps. Otherwise, fine condition.
