    1945 Cy Young Handwritten Signed Letter. The man whose career Major League pitching victories record will stand until the League is taken over by robots pens a single page response to an advice seeker. The content is magnificent, with statements like, "Play Ball as often as you can...I do not think you can learn it over night. You can learn after 13 yrs, 20 yrs or at least I learned till the end of my career..." All ink and closing signature rate 9/10 or better. Single lined page of notebook paper exhibits original mailing folds but no issues of concern. Original mailing envelope postmarked from Young's Newcomerstown, Ohio hometown is included. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
