Item 9092 - Frank Robinson 1968 Puerto Rico Winter League Signed Player Contract Catalog 542 (Feb 2019)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $2,000.00 +
Sold Price: $1,231.20 (includes buyer's premium)


Sought-after contract in Spanish, four pages on two adjoining sheets, 8.5 x 11, August 27, 1968. Professional Baseball League of Puerto Rico contract in which Frank Robinson, "a native of the United States," agrees to "provide efficient and loyal services as a baseball player during the 1968-1969" season for the Santurce baseball club, including the period of team training and all preseason and postseason games sponsored by the league, for a monthly salary of $800, with a subsection noting “the representative will receive monthly sums of $400 per diem and expenses of representation respectively.” Signed on the second page in black ballpoint by Robinson, and countersigned twice by the team's general manager, Hiram Cuevas, and by an official of the Puerto Rico Baseball League. In fine condition, with a few spots of staining. Two seasons removed from his Triple Crown accomplishment in the American League, Robinson obviously still needed supplemental income to support his lifestyle. My how things have changed since the Curt Flood/free agency 'emancipation'! Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.
