1961 one-year Player's contract for the Chicago White Sox Hall of Fame second bagger in the amount of $52,000. Signed in blue ink by Nellie Fox and Hank Greenberg (authorized signature). It is interesting that Greenberg would become part owner and vice president of the Chicago White Sox, a team that was especially intolerant of Greenberg because of his religion. Much like his previous dealings with religious epithets thrown at him, Hammerin' Hank chose to face these issues head on. Signatures are perfect and Mint. Contract itself is folded twice, o/w NRMT. Comes with original Chicago White Sox envelope which once held the contract.
