    1933 Joe Tinker Handwritten & Signed Letter with Baseball Content.

    "It is impossible to speak of the great deeds which made the Cubs of 1906 the most formidable team in the history of the game without due mention of their peerless shortstop, Joe Tinker," wrote F. C. Lane in Baseball Magazine. Lane was referring to the Hall of Famer's vaunted reputation for his glove work, clutch hitting and expertise with the hit-and-run.

    By the time 1924 had rolled around, Tinker was running a realty company and, as with most ballplayers, never really out of baseball. In his letter to "August Hermann, Pres. Cincinnati Base Ball Club," Tinker discusses a prospect ("Sanders") in the South Atlantic League whom he refers to as "...a player of the Zack Wheat type." Signed in 9/10 black fountain pen. Customary mailing folds on the company letterhead. An intriguing look at the behind-the-scenes wheeling and dealing of the age. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
