    1948 Duke Snider Signed Montreal Royals Uniform Player's Contract & Dodgers Correspondence. Duke Snider needed just a little bit more seasoning after his rookie season of 1947 with the Brooklyn Dodgers. The eventual Hall of Famer spent time with the Montreal Royals before resurfacing later in the season with the Dodgers. This contract secured Snider's services with the Royals in 1948. Snider signed the bottom of the opening page and inside in 9/10 blue ink. Also included is a letter from Branch Rickey (not signed), two transmittal of contract pages and a notice of disposition of player's contract signed by Buzz Bavasi. Each has regular mailing folds. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
