About this Item

Highly-regarded American broadcast journalist who hosted NBC's "The Huntley-Brinkley Report" with Chet Huntley (1956-70) and ABC's "This Week with David Brinkley" (1981-98), among other things. Signed Postal Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled in Wilmington, North Carolina, on July 10, 1969. Near fine. 5-cent "Carolina Charter 1663-1963" and 1-cent "Thomas Jefferson" stamps. NOT a First Day Cover, and with no engraved cachet at left -- but an imaginative collector had this cover cancelled on Brinkley's birthday (July 10) in his hometown (Wilmington) -- very cool. No distracting recipient's name/address present -- but Brinkley signs near the "sweet spot" boldly and attractively in blue fountain pen. Small portion of original transmittal envelope also present. Accompanied by a fine 7" X 9" glossy publicity portrait showing a determined, arms-crossed Brinkley in 1984 -- accompanying printed caption notes, "ABC News correspondent David Brinkley will share anchor duties with Peter Jennings for 'The '84 Vote' coverage of the Democratic National Convention." A handsome pair. Bookseller Inventory # 21369
