Product Description

Significant 1934 Wilbert Robinson Signed Hand Written Letter to Casey Stengel.  Wilbert Robinson is considered one of the greatest managers of all time.  He passed away in 1934 and was not inducted into the Hall of Fame until 1945.  His signature is incredibly scarce in any variation and is among the most difficult to obtain of Hall of Famers.  Presented here is one of the scant few hand written letters that is known to exist and is most certainly the finest of its kind, a congratulatory message to fellow future Hall of Fame manager Casey Stengel, who had just been named the replacement for Uncle Robbie's old job!  "I am sure pleased you have the position as Manager of The Brooklyn Club. I know you will do well in fact better than anyone I know of with the material you have".  Robbie goes on to wish Casey success as manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers and urges him to "Give them hell old boy and make a good showing."  The message is penned with 7/10 average strength on a single page of Atlanta Crackers letterhead, and signed by its Robinson at the close in black fountain pen ink. Up top, the word "Answered" appears in Stengel's distinctive scrawl. Page exhibits original mailing folds with minor general wear, but no flaws of any significance.  In 2017 Heritage Auctions sold this exact letter for $7,800.  This is a great opportunity to not only fill the Wilbert Robinson gap in your Hall of Fame collection, but also to buy a significant piece of baseball history, and for under market value!  Include Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, NM 7 (#AE04203).
