Offered is a Connie Mack signed cut, accompanied with a photo of the legendary Philadelphia Athletics baseball manager.  Mack has signed his name in black ink on a 2 x 3 ½-inch white card.  A 3 ½ x 6 ½-inch white envelope has the return address, in black ink, “American Base Ball Club of Philadelphia, Twenty-First & Lehigh Avenue, Philadelphia 32, P.A. on the front, with the black-typewritten address, “Summer Campbell, 390 Waltham Street, West Newton, Mass.”  The black ink-stamped postmark is “Philadelphia, P.A. June 23 1948 6:30 P.M.” on a purple Thomas Jefferson 3-cent stamp.  The black and white photograph depicts Mack in a dark suit, light shirt, light tie, and black hat. 

This item is also accompanied by newspaper and magazine clippings about Mack.  Cornelius McGillicuddy, better known as Connie Mack, was the longest-serving manager in Major League Baseball history. He holds records for wins (3,731), losses (3,948), and games managed (7,755), with his victory total being almost 1,000 more than any other manager.  Mack managed the Philadelphia Athletics for the club's first 50 seasons of play, starting in 1901, before retiring at age 87 following the 1950 season, and was at least part-owner from 1901 to 1954. He was the first manager to win the World Series three times, and is the only manager to win consecutive Series on separate occasions (1910–11, 1929–30); his five Series titles remain the third most by any manager, and his nine American League pennants rank second in league history. However, constant financial struggles forced repeated rebuilding of the roster, and Mack's teams also finished in last place 17 times. Mack was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, New York in 1937.  This item comes with a full LOA from PSA/DNA (S07430).
