Presented are two different first-day covers issued to commemorate the first East Coast National Baseball Card Show, held in White Plains, New York, on August 19, 1988, each signed by Mickey Mantle and a number of other players.

Each first-day cover (6.5 x 3.5 inches) displays a small area of adhesive residue on the reverse and is otherwise in Near Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. SOLD FOR $240
