    1896 George Wright Signed Wright & Ditson Silver Anniversary Dinner Invitation, PSA/DNA Gem Mint 10. An American giant of the 19th Century, George Wright was the first batter in National League history, best player of his day, and led the Boston Red Stockings to six championships in the 1870's. Later founded the sporting goods empire of Wright & Ditson and was a major force in the development of baseball, golf, tennis, and hockey in the United States. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1937.

    Incredible Wright & Ditson silver anniversary dinner invite (3.5x4.5") announces "Dinner Given by Wright & Ditson to Their Employees in Honor of Their Twenty-Five Years in Business" on the front and "Castle Square Hotel, Thursday Evening, Feb. 27th, 1896" with colored graphics on the back. Awesome "Geo Wright" autograph appears in the boldest imaginable black fountain pen. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Gem Mint 10.
