Default December Pick-Ups

I guess I'll start the December thread.....

I picked this up today from a local collector. I made him an offer on it a year ago and he passed. I made him the same offer again today and he accepted.

Really excited about this pickup. I collect items related to the Integration, and felt like this document played some role.

1945 contract between AB Chandler and the MLB owners making him the commissioner of baseball. The contract is signed by Chandler along with a representative from each team. Those include all-time great Eddie Collins, Branch Rickey (who would sign Jackie), Connie Mack, Clark Griffiths etc.

Chandler was obviously the commissioner when Jackie broke the color barrier, and was an ardent supporter of Robinson.

Default Not anything as cool as the '45 contract

But I picked up a neat letter and Western Union telegram to the Governor of Maine from the Boston Braves.
