From 1910-1913, the Philadelphia Athletics won three World Series Championships. All three were managed by Hall of Fame legend, Connie Mack, who authored this two-page hand written letter. Dated April 15th, 1913, on the New Ebbitt Army & Navy Headquaters letterhead (6 x 9 1/2), Mack includes some terrific baseball content, including how promising his team looked that year (pretty good since they won the World Series). The letter is to Mr. Holt who seems to have interest in the entire A's organization, as Mack writes: "Am sure you will be pleased to hear this, all our clubs look pretty strong which will make a great race. Earl's team looked good - while they are young they can all play some ball." Research has found that Connie is referring to his son, Earl Mack, who managed Raleigh of the Class D North Carolina State League. The black steel tip fountain penned letter and signature grade a remarkable 10/10, showing no mentionable flaws, other than the two horizontal folds that were done just prior to mailing. This remarkable piece of history comes with a LOA from James Spence/Steve Grad/et all from PSA/DNA.
