Listing Details

An amazing piece, this is a perfectly clean original player contract for Walter Beall to play for the New York Yankees in 1925. Beall (Dí1959) was payed the hefty some of $6,500 for his services. This has the usual secretarial Ruppert but the Beall autograph is beyond bold and is a gorgeous blue fountain pen signature that almost literally jumps off the page, it is that nice. Fully executed, this is signed by HOF exec Ban Johnson (for Ruppert) on the back cover. Beall, a 1927 Yankee, is one of the rarest autograph on that team and missing from 99% of all 1927 Yankee collections. Almost impossible to find as a cut, how great is it to find an actual Yankees player contract? A truly special piece for the advanced Yankee or early autograph collector, we are going to start this treasure super low to make things especially interesting! JSA LOA (full).
