    Description

    1944 Alexander Pompez Signed Letter. One of the most influential executives of the Negro Leagues, this son of Cuban immigrants owned the Cuban Stars of the Eastern Colored League, and later the New York Cubans of the Negro American League. Here he utilizes the letterhead of the latter to take on a contrite tone, apologizing for an apparent misunderstanding with a player on his squad. He writes, in part, "I am soliciting you to accept an apology from me for this misunderstanding. I was sold on you and I was glad to have you represent the N.Y. Cubans in your capable way." His fountain pen ink signature appears at the close of the letter with 10/10 boldness. A very tough TLS from the 2006 Hall of Fame inductee that books for $2,500 in Sports Market Report. Original mailing folds and paper clip impression at upper left, otherwise no flaws to note. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
