Spectacular 1943 Framed Letter and Photograph, both autographed by Athletics Legendary Manager Connie Mack.  Mack addressed this letter to a gentleman named Johnny, wishing him luck in the Army during WWII.  Johnny was evidently either a family member or family friend of Mack, as Mack talks about Johnny's mother in the letter.  He also discusses an upcoming 5 game series with the Yankees in the letter.  The letter is on blue decorated American Baseball Club of Philadelphia Letterhead, with the Elephant logo at the top.  The ink of the letter and both autographs exhibit a nice iron oxidized look.  The letter also mentions that Mack is sending Johnny an autographed photo, and Connie apologizes that it is so big!  The letter is signed in oxidized ink: To John, With Best Wishes, Connie Mack.  The photograph and letter are both neatly matted in a frame that probably dates to the period when Johnny received Mack's correspondence.  The photograph measures 8 by 10 inches and the matted portion of the letter measures 7 by 8 inches.  The overall dimensions of the frame are 22 inches tall by 12 inches wide.  This beautiful piece comes with a JSA Letter of Authenticity confirming both Mack signatures as authentic.  Overall a fantastic Mack piece, with a spectacular look.

Early 1960's Philadelphia Phillies letterhead signed by 8 different players.  The Players included are Robin Roberts, Curt Simmons, Curt Flood, Stan Lopata, Jackie Brandt, Gene Conley, Vic Powers, and one unidentified player.  All signers played for the Phillies in the late 1950's or early 1960's, except for Curt Flood.  The inclusion of Flood is interesting, since he was traded to the Phillies, but never played for them; instead sacrificing the remainder of his playing career to fight against the reserve clause of baseball.  This piece does not include a Letter of Authenticity
