Three items: TLS signed “E. V. Rickenbacker,” 7.25 x 10.5, Eastern Air Lines letterhead. Rickenbacker writes to Captain Rene Charles of the Les Ailes Mutilees, in full: “As requested in yours of November 24th, I am happy to enclose herewith two autographed photographs, which I trust will serve your purpose”; a color postcard, 3.25 x 5.25, featuring an image of Easter Airline’s 88-Passenger Super-Constellation plane, signed on the reverse in fountain pen, “Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker”; and a fountain pen signature on an off-white 4 x 1.5 slip clipped from the closing of a letter. In very good to fine condition, with a faint paperclip impression to the top left corner of the letter, along with two sets of binder holes along the left edge; light toning, a faded letter in pencil, surface impressions, a postal cancellation mark, and a punch hole to the right edge of the postcard; and a few trivial spots of foxing to the signature.
