    1953 Tris Speaker Signed Letter to Clark Griffith. When Jack Graney announced his retirement from the booth the Cleveland Indians decided it was time to honor the longtime broadcaster. This typed letter was sent to Clark Griffith of the Nationals and asks the Hall of Fame owner if he could write a letter or wire a few words of congratulations from the Washington organization. Hall of Famer hitter, and member of the Indians, Tris Speaker boldly signed this letter in 10/10 black ink. The mailing fold marks do not touch the signature.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
