Three items signed by one or more notable MLB players or managers from the 1950s, including:

Partly-printed DS signed “Satchel Paige,” one page, 5.5 x 8.5, September 19, 1980. Receipt from Houseman Ready Mix, Inc., in which Paige confirms receipt of a $366.19 order of concrete. In fine condition, with light handling wear.

Boston Red Sox player trade contract, signed “Joseph E. Cronin,” one page, 8.5 x 11, May 14, 1956. Official agreement between the Boston American League Baseball Company and the Baltimore Baseball Club, Inc., for the assignment of "Player John A. Schmitz‚ĶIn consideration of the payment of Fifteen ($15,000.00) Thousand Dollars cash." Signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by Cronin, and countersigned in ballpoint by a Baltimore executive. In fine condition. A two-time All-Star, Schmitz had pitched 4.1 shutout innings for the Red Sox in 1956, before finishing the season—and his career—with the Orioles, tallying a respectable 3.78 ERA over 38.1 innings throughout the balance of the summer.

Vintage fountain pen signatures of Nellie Fox, Eddie Robinson, Minnie Minoso, Joe Dobson, Al Zarilla, Chico Carrasquel, Doc Cramer, Billy Pierce, Gus Mancuso and Jim Busby on a 5.5 x 3.25 government postcard, postmarked August 13, 1951. In fine condition. A desirable early example of Fox, who was in his second full Major League season.
