In 1914, Hall of Fame second baseman Eddie Collins was finishing up his first stint with the Philadelphia A's, and this Sporting News postcard is a colorful keepsake from that campaign. The signature on the off-white album page is in black fountain ink, rating 8/10 and large-signed on the reverse by Oscar Horton. The postcard appears to be in EX condition on the front but has back damage with paper loss. A lifetime .333 hitter, Collins had helped propel the A's to three World Series titles in the previous four years but was sold to the White Sox after the 1914 season.
