    1950 Sammy Baugh Signed Standard Players Contract. From 1937 through 1952, the Washington Redskins found their offensive hopes in the very capable hands of Hall of Famer Sammy Baugh, who held just about every passing record in the book at the time of his retirement. Here we present the historic document that acquired Baugh's services for the fourteenth of his sixteen years in the nation's capital. The contract stipulates a salary of $11,000, a figure accepted by virtue of 10/10 autographs from Baugh and his fellow Hall of Famer, team owner George Marshall. It must be noted that Marshall's signature is quite rare and valuable, booking for a conservative $400 in Sports Market Report. The document measures 8.5x18.5" in size and remains in NRMT condition except for original storage folds and a staple hole at upper left. It does appear however that the contract may be permanently affixed to the backing, though this is not a major concern as the back of standard contracts are blank. The contract is nicely paired with a vintage signed 8x9.25" photo, with the "Best Wishes, Sam Baugh" inscription rating 8/10. The entire display is framed to an impressive 13x34" in size. LOA from PSA/DNA.
