Typed letter signed "Eddie Collins," one page, 8.5 x 11, Boston American League Baseball Company letterhead, November 4, 1943. Letter to Richard Rose, in part: "In order to be a good ball player, one has to first of all love the game above anything else. I was surprised to read that you know as much about my baseball career as you do, especially about the string of four hundred odd consecutive games that I had. This was while I was with the White Sox. As I recall it, the reason this string was broken was because I was seriously hurt on a play at second base, when a player whose name I do not recall now, slid into and hurt my left leg on a force play." In excelelnt overall condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
