Bill Veeck Signed 1976 Letter on Chicago White Sox Stationery.

Lot 23. Bill Veeck Signed 1976 Letter on Chicago White Sox Stationery. Dated January 23, 1976. At one time or another, Veeck was a principal owner of the Cleveland Indians, St. Louis Browns and Chicago White Sox. Also an innovator, Veeck came up with the idea of planting ivy on the walls of Wrigley Field in 1937. In 1947 he integrated the American League by signing Larry Doby. A year later, he signed Satchel Paige. Veeck also gained recognition for his publicity stunts. In 1951, he had Eddie Gaedel bat for the Browns in the first inning. Only 3’ 7,” Gaedel was walked on four straight pitches and then replaced by a pinch runner. Veeck also held a “Grandstand Manager’s Day,” which allowed fans to vote on various strategic decisions during a game by holding up signs. Veeck died in 1986. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1991. The 8 ½” x 11” sheet of White Sox stationery with his autograph is toned, has slightly clipped upper corners and shows two small pin holes near them. In the letter, Veeck thanks a fan for his “interest in the Chicago White Sox” and assures him that his “comments and suggestions will be given the utmost consideration.” Veeck’s signature is nm-m 8 to mint 9. Winning Bid $68.
