Estimate: $5,000.00 +
Sold Price: $8,988.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Contract, signed “Henry L. Aaron,” four pages on two adjoining sheets, 8.5 x 11, February 8, 1957. National League uniform player's contract in which Hank Aaron agrees to render "skilled services as a baseball player during the year 1957" for the Milwaukee Braves, for a salary of $22,500. Signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by Hank Aaron, National League President Warren Giles, and Milwaukee General Manager John J. Quinn. In excellent overall condition. In 1957, Aaron won his only NL MVP Award, and had his first brush with the Triple Crown—he batted .322, placing third in the NL, while leading the league in home runs (44) and runs batted in (132). More importantly, these impressive exploits helped the Braves to win the National League pennant—Milwaukee's first NL title—en route to their only World Series victory in the city, as they beat the seemingly perennial champion New York Yankees in an exciting seven game series. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.
