    Marques Haynes Autographs & Correspondence Archive from the Marques Haynes Collection. Here is a great group of pieces signed by several of Marques Haynes famous friends. First, two checks (signed by Marques) made payable to Sugar Ray Robinson. Both are endorsed, with one in full, as "Sugar Ray." Next are three receipts, one on Harlem magician stationery, signed by baseball Hall of Famer Bob Gibson. Included in the lot is a hand-written letter from Arthur Ashe Jr. (adding the uncommon "Jr." to his signature) to Marques dated April 2, 1969. It comes with the original mailing envelope, also signed "Arthur Ashe". Finally, an unsigned letter of agreement for Marques Haynes to perform with a team known as the "Harlem All-Stars" (presumably Magicians) in tandem with a tennis troupe led by Ms. Gibson. A neat piece of memorabilia. A fine group of desirable signatures. LOA from PSA/DNA.
