One of four known contracts of this devestating Negro League Hall of Famer. Leon Day's striking out 19 batters in a Puerto Rican League game made him a fan favorite there, as indicated by his $200 salary on this signed 1947 contract. Standard 8 1/2 X 11 inch pact has a stain o/w EX, sigs are NRMT. The "lanzador extranjero" (foreign pitcher") handwritten at the top underscores the league's selective recruiting of the top Negro League talent at the time.
