Description

1955 Richard Nixon Signed Letter re: Hall of Fame Day at Yankee Stadium. He's the biggest baseball fan ever to reside at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue--yes, even bigger than George W.--and we can truly feel his pain as he sends his regrets to Yankees president Dan Topping. "There is nothing I would like better than to be there to see, in the flesh, such all-time greats as Griffith, George Sisler, Lefty Grove, Mickey Cochrane, Frankie Frisch, Paul Waner, Fred Clarke, Cy Young, Ed Walsh, Al Simmons, Jimmy Foxx, Bill Dickey, Charley Gehringer, Mel Ott and many others whom I have read about and followed in the sports pages...But much as I would like to be with you, I must remain Washington for votes which are scheduled in the Senate on what may be the last day of the session." Closing signature is 9/10. Original mailing folds, with no other issues. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

Needless to say I was overwhelmed by the results of the auction and I truly believe it was Jill’s efforts in promoting and displaying the piece that brought in the extra value.
