    Description

    1944 Connie Mack Handwritten & Signed Letter. Connie Mack spent an incredible seventy-one years in Organized Baseball as a player, coach and team owner. As a manager, he won five World Series and almost 1,000 games more than any other manager. In this one-page, handwritten letter on "American Base Ball Club of Philadelphia" letterhead dated August 24, 1944, we get to see Mack as a gracious and thoughtful human being who places a high value on friendship and family. Writing to a longtime friend, Mack thanks him for "thinking of me in all these forty years" and is "grateful for the many favors you have done for me." He then goes on to remark that "nothing surpasses a lovely home and you have been very fortunate in having Mrs. Halh as your partner in life." Mack also adds some nice baseball content to the letter with "The boys have been doing some fine work of late, taking three games from both the Browns and Chicago - then to win the two games from Boston."

    Penned in bold, black fountain pen, the content and signature grade 10/10. The letterhead itself is lovely, with customary folds and a small ½" tear at the top which does not detract in any way from the visual appeal. The letter (8.5x11") and a black and white photo of Mack (7x9") are matted and framed to 21.5x16". Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
