    1938 Enos Slaughter Signed St. Louis Cardinals Contract from The Enos Slaughter Collection - Rookie Contract! Enos Slaughter's big league dreams took shape when he was noticed during a tryout for the St. Louis Cardinals in the fall of 1934 in Greensboro, North Carolina. Before he made his mad dash and was a part of ten All-Star Games, Slaughter was like any aspiring ballplayer. He had to persevere through the minors and prove his worth. In 1938, Slaughter settled into the Cardinals' outfield and enjoyed great success. This contract paid Slaughter a mere six hundred dollars a month. The team even spelled his name "Enus" on the opening page. Slaughter signed an inside page in bold black fountain pen. PSA/DNA did not pass the Branch Rickey signature. This is one of two Slaughter rookie contracts in this auction. The other only paid him four hundred a month. Letter of provenance from Slaughter family. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
