    1950's Marques Haynes Document Archive with Goose Tatum Autographs. Directly from the estate of early Harlem Globetrotter and Naismith Hall of Famer Haynes, this collection of three documents is highlighted by a 3x5" card submitted for the opening of a bank account signed by both Haynes and his business partner in the newly-formed Harlem Magicians basketball team, Goose Tatum. Autographs from Tatum are particularly tough, and he signs both front and back with Haynes with his given "Reece Tatum" name. Also here is Haynes' 1951 draft card, and his "United States Employment Service" card listing him as "Laborer Iron & Steel." These latter two pieces are unsigned. All pieces show their age but have no major condition problems. The four autographs on the banking card are 10/10. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
