Includes: Collins (3-1/2 x 1-3/8", "7" sig) and Speaker (3-1/2 x 7/8", "8-9" sig w/vertical fold on the "e"). Toned and showing reverse-side mounting wear, both were cut out of their accompanying 7/16/24 handwritten letters from "Ardent Admirer Robert C. Freund" who also asked them to inscribe their weight, which appears adjacent to the excised portion. A Rogers Hornsby letter from the same day is adhered to the reverse of the Collins letter (and likewise the Hornsby cut is visible on the reverse of the Collins cut) but Rajah's signature was damaged by the process. Auction LOA from JSA.
"I met the writer and obtained the signatures about 25 years ago," recalls Lew Lipset.
