    1930 Honus Wagner Handwritten Signed Letter. It's just one more reason to love the old game--if you wrote to just about any legend of the sport of baseball, he was likely to write back. Evidence of the fact is presented here in the form of a handwritten message from the Old Dutchman on the letterhead of a South Bend, Indiana hotel. In full:

    "Aug. 4-30, Dear Mrs. Pearce, In reply to your letter in which you wish me to autograph a base ball for your boy Jimme. I will gladly do it if you mail it to me at address below. With best wishes to Jimmie, Yours Truly, J. Honus Wagner, 605 Beechwood Ave., Carnegie, Pirate Coach."

    A small smudge affects the first initial of Wagner's signature, but otherwise all ink is 9+/10, and the page exhibits original mailing folds but no other issues. 6x9.5". Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
