Handwritten Letter by Honus Wagner Describing the Hardest Play He Ever Made.

Lot 15. Handwritten Letter by Honus Wagner Describing the Hardest Play He Ever Made. The letter is written in Wagner’s hand on a half sheet of paper attached to a scrapbook page. It appears that Wagner received a request, turned the paper over and wrote his response: “One of the hardest plays I ever made was with the Bases full and the other Club needing one run to tie and 2 to win. Infield playing in to stop a Run at the plate. Batter hits a Low Line Hit to my right. I dove for the Ball and caught it with my bare hand about 3 inches from the ground. My Jump took me head first into the ground and I came up with the ball and made a Double Play.” He signed “Honus Wagner.” He wrote the letter in fountain pen. The letter, the only Wagner handwritten letter we’ve seen, is a 10. Authenticated by Kevin Keating.
Winning Bid $1,774.
