Description
1939 William "Cy" Perkins Signed Puerto Rican League Contract. Though Satchel Paige had been battery mates with Negro League legends like Josh Gibson, Double Duty Radcliffe and Quincy Trouppe, his favorite catcher was Bill Perkins who, according to Paige, "handled a pitcher like nobody's business." Presented is an incredibly scarce contract securing Perkins' services for winter ball down in Puerto Rico, with the star of such historic Negro League teams as the Homestead Grays, Philadelphia Stars and Baltimore Elite Giants signing his consent with 10/10 black fountain pen ink. While Negro League autographs tend to be challenging regardless, Perkins' murder in 1948 complicated the hunt for his signature even further. You'll be hard pressed to find a superior specimen. Contract exhibits original storage folds and punch holes, minor staining and general handling wear but is otherwise solid and complete. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

Shipping: Flat Material, Small

Important notice: Heritage usually auctions material at the rate of 100-110 lots per hour. On some occasions the Live Auctioneer bid software or the Internet may not be able to keep up with the pace of the auction. We recommend placing a realistic absentee bid now as insurance to avoid disappointment. Occasionally the auctioneer may eliminate or reject a Live Auctioneer Live bid, and the auctioneer may also reopen a lot after the close of the Live Auctioneers live bidding (usually because we missed an audience bid), and may reject your bid even if it shows you as the winning bidder. By bidding via Live Auctioneers, you agree that Heritage may award the lot to another bidder at its sole discretion under the circumstances described above or any other reasonable circumstances. Since Live Auctioneer bids are not shown to us until we open the lot on the floor, we treat those bids just like floor bids. In most cases the floor responds before the Live Auctioneer bid is presented to us, due to Internet lag time, so for consistency we have made it a policy that floor bids are always considered first over tie Live Auctioneer bids. Also please note that all Heritage lots purchased through Live Auctioneers carry a 19.50% Buyer's Premium with a $14 minimum Buyer's Premium. Please make sure you read the Terms and Conditions before you bid. This lot is being auctioned in conjunction with a live floor auction by Heritage Auctions. All final auction and invoice information will be supplied by Heritage Auctions, and all other information should be considered preliminary.
