1957 Walter O'Malley Signed Letter re: Possible Brooklyn Exodus. The Hall of Fame executive bristles at the suggestion that he's the villain in response to a concerned Brooklyn Dodgers fan. "I have your letter," O'Malley writes, "but I wonder how carefully you read the newspapers. They very clearly stated that we want to keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn and were willing to spend $5,000,000 to do so. Progress, however, has been very slow and we will have to leave Brooklyn if there is not to be a new stadium when our present lease runs out." Of course that tragic day would come, and O'Malley would be widely blamed by the devastated fan base. Single page of team letterhead has only original mailing folds to note, and blue ink signature is as bold as the day it was applied. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
