    Description

    1964 Walt Bond Signed Player Contract. Having contributed as a member of the major league teams at Cleveland, Houston and Minnesota throughout his twenties, Walt Bond seemed to have a tremendous career in baseball ahead of him. This was especially true after his '64 season with the Colt .45s, during which he hit 20 homers with 85 RBI. The 6'6" Bond sought to improve his skills further following that campaign, signing on with the Ponce club from the Puerto Rican Winter League. Here we offer his signed player contract for the club, which has been dated 1964. The leukemia that he had been battling at the time would not stay in remission much longer, though, and the disease eventually claimed his life in 1967 at the age of 29. Extremely tough signature dating from perhaps the height of this great player's career. LOA from PSA/DNA.
