Book Description: 1950. Mss. Typed letter, single sheet, dated December 5, 1950 signed in ink by Baseball Hall of Famer Branch Rickey. The letter is addressed to the Brooklyn National League Baseball Club and instructs the transfer of his shares in the Brooklyn Dodgers to Walter O'Malley's holding company. Rickey, best known as the man who signed Jackie Robinson to play for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 thereby breaking major league baseball's color barrier, fell out of favor when O'Malley assumed control of the Dodgers in July, 1950. Despite the fact that Rickey had built the team into a powerhouse, O'Malley forced him out, thereby giving him complete control of the team (which he would move to Los Angeles several years later). Rickey (d.1965) was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1967. Letter is clean and crisp, one light mailing crease.

Book Description: 1920. Manuscript. Typed letter on St. Louis Cardinls Baseball Club letterhead, dated October 23, 1920 and signed in full ink by Branch Rickey as Vice President of the team. One short paragraph to a Massachusetts man "I am already thinking and planning for my team for next year. What do you think about taking the training trip with my cluc. I believe you would have a splendid chance of staying with us. If this appeals to you, let me hear from you at once." Mailing folds and a few light wrinkles. Branch Rickey (1881-1965) had a short major league playing career with the St. Louis Browns and New York Highlanders 1905-07. He went on to manage the Browns and The Cardinals in the teens and twenties before moving to the front office. He is credited with inventing the minor league "farm system" while with the Cardinals. In 1943 he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers and is most famous today as the man who signed Jackie Robinson to a major league contract, thereby breaking major league baseball's color barrier in 1947. Rickey was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1967. (PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT PROVIDE COPIES OF UNIQUE, MANUSCRIPT, OR SIGNED MATERIALS. AUTHENTICITY IS GUARANTEED.
