1932 Jim Taylor Handwritten Letter (8x10”)

1932 Jim Taylor Handwritten Letter (8x10”)

Letter signed and written in the hand of “Candy” Jim Taylor, key player on the 1916 Indianapolis ABC’s who defeated the Chicago American Giants in the World Series and imminent Negro League manager who managed three different squads to pennants. With key baseball content, letter is dated May 19, 1932 and written on “Jim Taylor’s A.B.C’s” stationary. It reads, “Dear Sir: Find Sanders the short stop that was trying out with American Giants. Have him write me by Friday May 27th. Will be home by then. Can use you and him for season. Will send you both tickets to report Saturday May 28th. Am at 329 Indiana Ave. Indianapolis, Ind. I’m yours, Jim Taylor.” Letter is technically G-VG. Separated along one horizontal crease, but held together by tape on verso. Another piece of paper has been pasted on the top half of the verso to reinforce the stationary. Black fountain pen ink is still bold and completely legible. Signature grades a “7” out of a possible 10.
