    Description

    1937 Sam Breadon Signed St. Louis Cardinals Letter - Team Owner. President and majority owner of the St. Louis Cardinals from 1920 through 1947 Sam Breadon rose the Cardinals from languishing as one of the National League's doormats to a premier power in baseball, winning nine NL pennants and six World Series championships. Breadon also had the highest regular season winning percentage of any owner in franchise history at .570. His teams totaled 2,470 wins and 1,830 losses.

    Appearing on attractive St. Louis Cardinals letterhead, this typed note - dated May 30, 1937 - to Major Maylin Pickering is signed in exceptional black steel tip ink by Breadon. A pair of mailing folds traverse the letter, though neither interfere with the signature. Light wear exhibited otherwise. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
