National League’s most dominant pitcher ever

Alexander overcame epilepsy, alcoholism, and harrowing combat during World War I to become one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history.

Vintage 5.5 x 3.25 arcade card of Alexander in his Cubs uniform, signed in fountain pen, “G. C. Alexander.” Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. In fine condition, with some scattered light surface marks, and some scattered slight surface loss along edges. Auction LOA Steve Grad/PSA/DNA and R&R COA.
