According to the AP's intact paper caption on the reverse, "Cy Young returns pen to Bill Veeck, president of the Cleveland Indians, after signing contract which Veeck fondles during banquet honoring the old fireballer's 80th birthday in Newcomerstown, Ohio, March 29. Veeck presented an automobile, gift of admirers, to Young." The 7x9 Type I photo showcases perfect image clarity and carries an AP copyright stamp and date stamp of "APR 1 1947." (Two weeks before Jackie Robinson integrated baseball.) Young's fountain-pen signature exhibits "7" strength. EX condition with modest peripheral wear from newsroom usage. Full LOA from JSA.
