Sewell on Ruth

ALS, one page, 8.5 x 11, no date. Sewell writes to Paul. In part: “In your letter you had the first part O.K. but he hit 2 home runs, 1 triple, and 2 base hits a total of 5 for 5 times at the bat that day, and he made a one hand catch going to right center to save the ball game. After we got into our club house we were setting [sic] on our stools just resting, and McCarthy looked at me, and said, What would you do with a fellow like that? I answered him by saying, get the son of a gun tight every day. We all got a good laugh out of that. That is all that happened that day.” Accompanied by the original letter to Sewell discussing the game in question. Mild handling wear, otherwise fine condition. Auction LOA Steve Grad/PSA/DNA and R&R COA.
