Sandy Koufax Signed AUTO 3x5 index card dated August of 1956 PSA/DNA

Sandy Koufax is a retired American Major League Baseball (MLB) left-handed pitcher. He pitched twelve seasons for the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers, from 1955 to 1966. Koufax, at age 36 in 1972, became the youngest player ever inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Koufax is also remembered as one of the outstanding Jewish athletes in American sports. His decision not to pitch Game 1 of the 1965 World Series because it fell on Yom Kippur garnered national attention as an example of conflict between professional pressures and personal beliefs.

Offered is a vintage 3x5 index card signed while Sandy was playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers.  On the back of the postcard (this may have been obtained in person); it is dated in a collector’s hand Dodgers 8-10-56.  (side note, the Dodgers lost that day to the Phillies at Ebbets Field in front of 16,025.  Sal Maglie pitched that day (Sandy sat in the bullpen).  Sandy had pitched on August 5th and wouldn’t pitch again until September 2nd, so he had plenty of time to sign.
