Description

    1949 Babe Didrikson Zaharias Signed Letter. A standout in track and field, golf and basketball, Babe Didrikson Zaharias was one of sport's greatest all-around athletes. During her lifetime, she won two Olympic gold medals and ten LPGA golf titles, while serving as a pioneer and inspiration for female athletes on all levels. The typed letter here is on her stunning, personal letterhead with her facsimile signature in black at the top along with the "Wilson Sporting Goods Co." logo in red, for which she was an advisory staff member. Dated February 16, 1949, the typed letter to the City Council President of New York thanks him for honoring her an outstanding athlete and gives permission to use her name for the occasion. Her fabulous black fountain pen signature is a 10/10. The letter (7.25x10.25") has customary folds and light discoloration. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
