    Description

    1929 James Naismith Handwritten Letter. Single page rendered in Naismith's 10/10 pencil answers an included typed letter from the "Joint Basketball Committee" requesting his attendance at a dinner banquet. Naismith's written response was almost certainly later typed and returned. He writes, in part, "...I am afraid that anything I may have said in years gone by would be sadly out of date...I have tried to come at the best of the past with the best of the present...I am at present making an investigation as to the advantage of a tall centre and have some interesting data for this question..." Page is EX. LOA from PSA/DNA.
