    1977-79 Nolan Ryan Signed Uniform Player's Contract. The California Angels were fully aware by now that they had something truly special in the right arm of their New York Mets acquisition, a fire-throwing righty who twice ate up over three hundred innings in his five seasons in Los Angeles, and took the single-season strikeout record each season but one. Wisely, management took serious steps to nail down the big Texan, presenting this contract for three seasons at a quarter million dollars a year. The final page features several typed addenda including a $200,000 signing bonus and travel expense coverage, with the future Hall of Famer indicating his agreement to the terms with two 'Lynn Nolan Ryan, Jr." autographs. The contract is counter-signed by American League president Lee MacPhail and Angels general manager Harry Dalton. All autographs are 9/10 or better. The standard six-page contract exhibits mild handling wear but nothing that could be characterized as damage, remaining solid, complete and perfect for display. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
