It was during this second season that Jennings penned this single affectionate page to a journalist who had written a recent article about him. He mentions his ailing friend and the team he was guiding in his absence, writing, "Mac has been quite sick for three weeks confined to bed. I saw him last night and he is improving. The team has been going good and only hope it keeps up. The Tigers don't seem able to get started. Better get busy soon or they will be out of the race." The letter is penned on Giants team letterhead, with all ink rating a spectacular 9+/10. A single drop of water has caused three letters to bleed their ink, to no significant detriment. The closing signature, "Hugh Jennings," is flawless. The page exhibits original mailing folds, otherwise NRMT. A stamp on verso applied by the addressee dates receipt to "May 19, 1925." The intense rarity of a handwritten Jennings letter--the first we've ever handled--matched with the fantastic baseball content should place this firmly on the radar of any advanced baseball autograph collector. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
