1955 Richard Nixon Signed Letter re: Hall of Fame Day at Yankee Stadium. He's the biggest baseball fan ever to reside at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue--yes, even bigger than George W.--and we can truly feel his pain as he sends his regrets to Yankees president Dan Topping. "There is nothing I would like better than to be there to see, in the flesh, such all-time greats as Griffith, George Sisler, Lefty Grove, Mickey Cochrane, Frankie Frisch, Paul Waner, Fred Clarke, Cy Young, Ed Walsh, Al Simmons, Jimmy Foxx, Bill Dickey, Charley Gehringer, Mel Ott and many others whom I have read about and followed in the sports pages...But much as I would like to be with you, I must remain Washington for votes which are scheduled in the Senate on what may be the last day of the session." Closing signature is 9/10. Original mailing folds, with no other issues. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).
