    1924 Max Carey Signed Letter.
    In July of 1924 a fan of future-Hall of Fame outfielder Max Carey wrote the Pirates star a letter that reads "Dear Mr. Carey: Which do you consider as your best year in the major leagues?"

    Carey responded, saying "My guess would be 1922. Very Truly yours," followed by his signature. His answer would be difficult to dispute at the time, as "Scoops" hit .329, leading the league with 51 stolen bases and reaching base at a .408 clip.

    The letter shows moderate wear and creasing and has been pasted to various other articles and clippings from the time in order to give it more rigidity. Measures 8x10" Pre-Certified


    Guide Value or Estimate: $200 - up.

    Auction Type
    Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 15 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
