Gswarriorz,
2902 Fulton Road is about 15 minutes away from where LeBron James used to work.
4431 Maplecrest is about 2 miles from where I work.
We do not have similar occupations.

The reversed cancel on the New York to Cleveland card:
A canceling machine operating normally in this era has a mechanism which is tripped by an entering mail piece and causes the canceling machine head to rotate and imprint the cancel on the mail piece. When this trip mechanism is broken or out of adjustment in some manner, the canceling head may rotate continuously and imprint ink on the rollers which normally would roll along on the opposite (back) side of the mail piece. Without a mail piece going through the machine to get the cancel, the ink transfers from the canceling head to the adjacent rollers and then to the back of the next mail piece to pass through it - in mirror image of course. Not rare.
