Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $2,404.80 (includes buyer's premium)


Contract, signed “‘Chief,’ C. A. Bender,” four pages on two adjoining sheets, 8.5 x 11, May 3, 1944. American League uniform employee’s contract in which Chief Bender agrees to render "skilled service as a baseball scout…during the year 1944" for the Philadelphia Athletics, for a salary of $3,900. Signed and dated at the conclusion in blue ballpoint by Bender, who adds his address below, and countersigned by Owner and Manager Connie Mack. The reverse is signed by American League President William Harridge. In fine condition, with some slight staining to lower left of signed page. One has to ponder Bender's scouting acumen as the A's never achieved any other accolades till they left Philadelphia. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.
