Net a little piece of baseball history with this vintage contract. Dated 2/16/21 on the second page, this near-antique document was used for the signing of Joe Munson of Renova, PA. to a one-year deal with the New York Yankees at a rate of $300.00 per month. This official four-page agreement is titled "American League of Professional Baseball Clubs Uniform Player's Contract" as is signed on page two by Yankees President Jacob Ruppert ("9-10", very bold), American League President and founder Ban Johnson ("9") and on the back page by player Joe Munson ("9"). Two period compacting folds including one with a small tear and a modest wrinkle in the field at top right have little impact of the broad appeal of this well-preserved document, which otherwise remains in excellent condition. Baseball historians will be intrigued by the chance to read first hand, the language and terms of the day printed through the contract's pages. Auction LOA from JSA.
