Description


TLS, one page, 8.25 x 9.75, Boston American League Baseball Company letterhead with appealing Red Sox logo, May 14, 1934. Letter to Frank L. Boyden at Deerfield Academy, in part: "Appreciate so much your cordial letter and regret that you could not have been present on the occasion of the dinner given in honor of Tom Yawkey and myself on the occasion of my birthday at the Copley Plaza Hotel. It turned out to be a wonderful occasion and I certainly enjoyed it thoroughly. I hope that this will find you and everyone at school fine and that your ball club especially is prospering." Attractively double-matted and framed with a portrait to an overall size of 24 x 16.5. In fine condition. Yawkey had purchased the Boston Red Sox in 1933, and persuaded Collins, his close friend who had recently retired from a Hall of Fame playing career, to be the team's vice president and general manager.
