    1950 Sammy Baugh Signed Standard Players Contract The paperwork that brought the Hall of Fame quarterback on board for the 14th of his 16 years of service to the Washington Redskins. The contract explains that "Samuel Adrian Baugh" will be paid $11,000 for "the football season commencing in 1950." Dated 11/17/49, the contract is signed in perfect blue ink at the close by Baugh. Perhaps equally exciting is the equally strong countersignature of fellow Hall of Fame resident George Marshall, a notoriously difficult football autograph, and the founder of the Boston Braves, which would become the Boston Redskins, before finally making a home in our nation's capital. The contract itself offers no tears, staining or creasing other than the original mailing folds. The envelope that once housed it, an official team letterhead variety penned with Baugh's name and the word "Important," is included. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
