Description

The i's are dotted, the t's are crossed, and the deal is on the table for you to acquire several significant baseball autographs, with this vintage Uniform Player's Contract. Dated 1/31/68, this contract is made between the Oakland Athletics and pitcher Chuck Dobson, for the princely sum of $15,000, for the 1968 season. Dobson got off to a promising start, giving the A's six good years from 1966-1971, before calcium deposits in his pitching elbow rendered him ineffective. Located on the crisp contract's third page are (3) autographs averaging ("8-9") potency, with: Athletics owner Charlie O. Finley, AL President Joe Cronin (HOF), and hard luck pitcher Dobson. Also present is a 1968 Topps card #62 Dobson (NM). Full photo LOA from JSA.
