The Puerto Rican League misspelled Monte Irvin's name in two different ways (Monty Irvin and Monty Irving) on this 1941 contract and paid him a meager $40 a week. But he was just 22-years-old and still eight years away from joining the newly integrated major leagues as a New York Giant. League's ink-stamp logo of a player mounted on a pedestal with the league's name surrounding it in a circle has faded slightly but adds a colorful touch. Contract is EX, sigs are NRMT.
