Contract, signed “Warren E. Spahn,” four pages on two adjoining sheets, 8.5 x 11, January 23, 1954. National League uniform player’s contract in which Warren Spahn agrees to render "skilled services as a baseball player during the year 1954" for the Milwaukee Braves, for a salary of $50,000. Signed at the conclusion in black ink by Spahn, who adds his address below, and countersigned by Braves General Manager John J. Quinn and National League President Warren Giles. In fine condition. Spahn's stellar 1953 season where he was 23-7 and led the league in ERA with a 2.10 gave the Braves confidence to give their ace a significant contract in '54. He did not disappoint, going 21 and 12. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.
