Description

Offered are three 1950s players’ contracts with significant signatures from key general managers. The first is the contract for HOFer Bob Lemon for the 1956 season signed by Hank Greenberg (d.1986, “9”) who was the Cleveland Indians general manager. The second contract is for Frank Thomas for the 1954 season signed by then Pittsburgh Pirates GM Branch Rickey (d.1965, “10”). Both of these contracts are in absolutely great condition but signed by only the general managers, Greenberg and Rickey. The last contract is the 1995 contract of Ned Garver of the Detroit Tigers signed by both Garver (“9”) and Muddy Ruel (d.1963, “10”). This contract is also in high grade and the collection comes with an auction COA from James Spence Authentications.
