The pride of Gretna, Louisiana, Mel Ott belied his 5-foot-9, 170-lb. stature with 511 career home runs. Following his playing career, he served in a managerial capacity and complied with autograph requests until his untimely passing in 1958. This government postcard is decorated with one such Ott scripting. Executed in blue ballpoint on the blank side, Ott’s penning projects (“9-10”) strength and clarity. The 5-1/2 x 3-1/4” keepsake is postmarked “1951” on the addressed reverse. Full photo LOA from JSA.
