1917 Honus Wagner Handwritten And Signed Letter

1917 Honus Wagner Handwritten And Signed Letter

One of the five original inductees into the Hall of Fame, shortstop Honus Wagner combined awesome fielding ability with a lifetime batting average of .329, over 21 seasons. Wagner letters and signed items are very rarely seen, so of particular interest is this 1917 Honus Wagner letter, 2 pages, handwritten, dated and boldly signed by Wagner. Dated Sept. 12, 1917, the letter was written just five days before his final professional game. As “The Flying Dutchman” neared the end of his playing career, his thoughts naturally turned to arranging a comfortable life after baseball. This letter to a building contractor confirms plans for new flooring and other improvements to his home and includes the original envelope, written in his hand, stamped and postmarked. The letter, with each sheet 6 x 9.5”, is boldly written in blue fountain pen on hotel stationery. Condition of letter is fantastic, showing very little wear from being kept folded for so many years. The original envelope is here as well, in Fair condition. Recently discovered in an old wooden box in one of Wagner’s old residences.
