Default Campy & Envelope

Hey guys
I picked this up for the postcard. The envelope was nice but now I am not so sure the postcard came in it, since the autograph doesn't look too good either (it looks like a slow hand last name). That said I am not an autograph guy and Campy very well could have signed differently before the accident than after. Any help on it would be great...

Hi Leon,
That one is a stamped/facsimile/preprinted signature.

The postmark on the envelope looks like 1966.

I thought Campanella COULDN'T sign autographs after the accident until someone came up with some kind of a device that helped him, and if my understanding is correct the device wasn't around until the 1980s or so.

Can anyone post an image of a device-assisted Campanella signature? I don't recall seeing one, and I'm curious to see how they look. Also interested in seeing the device itself (I don't know if it needs to be said, but it doesn't have to be the exact same one that Campy used).

Quite simply Campanella could not sign after his accident . Autograph requests via the mail were either a facsimile signed photo or a stamped signature on your item that you sent . In person he would give out these same photos or stamped cards. Then in the mid 1980s during the autograph craze a device was designed for him that he would "wear and use" to sign your autographs at shows . Flats were easy to do but baseballs did pose a problem and bats and jerseys were rare. Also at that time I believe he was the most expensive in person autograph signing fee on the show circuit . I remember fees of $250 -$350 per item at the National Pastime shows and at the National. So technically to an autograph purist after the accident he couldn't sign his name ever , and collectors at the time would not take his device assisted signatures as a "real" Campanella signature since it was done with the assistance of the signing device .

The pictured envelope is from 1966 with the proper stamp of White Plains where he lived . The 7th Ave NYC return address in the upper left I believe is from his HIP liquor store he owned .
