Description

    1940's Felix Mackiewicz Collection with Signed Autographs from Connie Mack, Roger Peckinpaugh. You likely have never heard the name Felix Mackiewicz, who played 223 Major League games over a six-season span seven decades ago, but his collection reveals several brushes with greatness as an aspiring baseball talent in the 1940's. While there is an intriguing variety of personal and team photos from his farm club service, we concentrate here upon the times he rubbed elbows with Big League legends. These include: 1) Three separate releases from the Philadelphia Athletics organization, each signed by Connie Mack. 2) 1942 Connie Mack signed contract cover letter with unsigned contract. 3) 1946 contract cover letter from Cleveland Indians, signed by Roger Peckinpaugh. 4) The unexecuted 1946 Indians contract, signed by Roger Peckinpaugh. 5) 1941 Christy Walsh signed letter regarding film that would come to be known as "The Pride of the Yankees." The balance of the collection includes old photos and postcards, and a petition to make Mackiewicz a member of the Chicago All-Star collegiate football team.
