    Description

    1930's-50's Baseball Hall of Famers Signed Letters Lot of 11. Fantastic archive of signed letters often features great content, with some rather private thoughts on contract negotiations from legends who express dissatisfaction with their salaries. If this stuff had hit the press back in the day! 1) 1952 Pee Wee Reese ALS (signed "Pee Wee.") 2) 1949 Branch Rickey TLS. 3) 1961 Jackie Robinson TLS (signed "Jackie.") 4) 1959 Warren Giles TLS. 5) 1957 Ford Frick TLS. 6) 1952 Duke Snider ALS (3 pages). 7) 1955 Sparky Anderson TLS (signed "George Lee Anderson.") 8) 1959 Walt Alston ALS (2 pages). 9) 1937 Casey Stengel TLS. 10) 1950 Walter O'Malley TLS. 11) 1959 Hank Greenberg TLS (signed "Hank."). All are signed in full name format unless otherwise noted, and all autographs and pages are in perfect, mailed condition. There are a couple Dodgers contract letters that include copies of Buzzie Bavasi's response in which he tends to explain why guys like Pee Wee and the Duke might not deserve the bucks they're seeking. It can get a bit testy, so the winning bidder should be prepared for a bit of scandal... Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
