    Description

    1883 Harry Wright Personally Executed Pair of Box Scores, One Signed. A pair of box scores this time, once again from the man whose contributions to our National Pastime earned him a well-deserved bronze plaque at Cooperstown. One of the game's first professional players, Wright had hung up his spikes six seasons earlier and was now managing the Providence Grays of the National League. Recounted here are his team's encounters with the Buffalo Bisons and the Cleveland Blues, each filled out entirely in Wright's hand and the latter signed in the "Scorer" box with a 9/10 pencil "H. Wright." Among the players on the field in these contests: Hall of Famers Radbourne, O'Rourke and Brouthers. Each two-sided 4x6.5" sheet, removed from Wright's scorebook, survives in fine EX-MT+ condition, with no noteworthy condition issues. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
