First Day Cover, First Day of Issue Stamp/Envelope with stamp commemorating the 100th Anniversary of Minnesota statehood. SIGNED by Eugene McCarthy, Hubert Humphrey, Walter Mondale and Harold Stassen. Beside serving in various elected political positions (including 2 as Vice-Presidents of the United States), all four ran are also noted for having run (unsuccessfully) for president.

No provenance available for these signatures. GOOD+ condition. Minor toning. Stamp/envelope bears post office cancels and date. Minor wrinkling and edgewear. Rear envelope with glue stains.
