Description



Defined by wealth and nobility, Morgan Bulkeley sought to rid baseball of gambling, drinking and rowdy fans during his brief tenure as the National League’s first President. His attempt to shape the National Pastime gave way to success in business and politics, as well as posthumous election into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Incredibly rare in the circles of Cooperstown signatures, this Bulkeley cut signature is decidedly strong and an automatic highlight to any collection. Unevenly trimmed to approximately 5-1/2”-long, the scrap appears to be the culmination of a binding document, as Bulkeley (d.1922) has signed on a line marked “President” at the conclusion. Executed in his capacity running the National League, or perhaps the Aetna Insurance Co., the black-ink steel tip fountain pen scripting maintains (“9”) potency and is accompanied by a full photo LOA from JSA.
