Two 1941 Joseph Gunson Full-Page Letters Comparing Ty Cobb & Billy Hamilton
He first talks of his minor league career: Meriden CT 1885, Atlanta 1886 Southern League, 1887 Kansas Western League, KC Blues 1890. Full signature and address, slight water damage. Second letter talks of the great Herman Long with his "nearly basehanded glove." "Donnie Strong was one of the best first basemen" & "Billy Hamilton was the greatest base stealer" and "stole more than twice as many bases as Ty Cobb in half as many years." But not nearly so valuable as a man to the team, as Cobb had that initiative and lightning thinking. Goes on to more ad more. In pencil with ink. P.S note regarding 1892 outlaw league and was chosen by Baltimore. Awesome content!
