    1967 Juan Marichal Rejects San Francisco Giants Contract Offer Letter & Chub Feeney Response - Great Content. Lets be honest, we all think we are underpaid. Well, Juan Marichal was mad as hell and he wasn't going to take it anymore. Marichal received his contract offer from the Giants for the 1967 and returned it unsigned. The impetus for Marichal's displeasure was fellow future Hall of Famer Don Drysdale was being paid some $35,000 more in 1966. Marichal ends the typed letter (paper loss on upper left corner) requesting $125,000 and signs off in 7/10 ballpoint ink. Giants' Vice President Chub Feeney counters and believes the $90,000 salary offer is more than fair. Both letters are framed with a photo of Marichal wielding a bat during his infamous fight in the center. Measures 39.75x16.5". Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
