Description

    1953 Babe D. Zaharias Signed Letter. The greatest female athlete of the 20th century certainly did possess marvelous athleticism and talent, but she had a personality and character that few got to see. Though stricken with cancer and having undergone surgery, Babe Zaharias writes this unbelievable letter to her good friend Scotty Chisholm on December 1, 1953. She says, "Take very good care of yourself, Scotty, because there are too many people who love you very much." Babe would win the US Womens Open the next year in 1954 and die within two years. Signed with a perfect fountain pen signature. Page exhibits original mailing folds and mild toning but presents marvelously. LOA from Mark Emerson. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
