Description

The offered letter is quite unique; it is a MLB Players’ Association suggestion letter that Roger Maris of the New York Yankees filled out and submitted. The top, typed portion of the letter instructs the player that the comments made will be kept confidential and all suggestions can help improve the relationship between the league and its players. Maris preformed his due diligence and suggested the following, ”A better clubhouse in Chicago and dugout and a better clubhouse in Cleveland. A toilet in Kansas City dugout.” All of Maris’ suggestions were written in his hand. Maris (d.1985, “8”) signed the letter at the bottom and all of the script is in blue ink and grades (“8-9”). This one-of-a-kind piece has been framed to the overall dimensions of 12x15 and is ready for immediate display. COA from James Spence Authentications.
