Luther “Dummy” Taylor (NY Giants 1900-08) 2-page handwritten and signed letter. This is certainly certainly one of the better Taylor items available, full of autobiographical detail touching on the school for the deaf in Olathe KS, his early days in baseball, John McGraw, and the 1905 World Series. Lanigan, to whom the letter is addressed, is very likely Harold W. Lanigan, writer for The Sporting News. Lanigan wrote a feature story on Taylor for The Sporting News published on December 24, 1942. The letter, dated November 9, 1942 was probably written as part of Lanigan’s research process for the article. The letter is finished off with Taylor’s large, bold signature. Letters such as this one, with actual baseball and biographical content, are extremely tough to come by. The letter is written on two one-sided sheets, each 8.5″ x 11″. Condition is good with mild toning and a few short tears at margins. Each page has mailing folds and the second page has two spots of tape repair on the reverse at the center fold line. Please see photos with listing. Comes with PSA/DNA LOA. The item “Dummy Taylor Handwritten Letter New York Giants Autograph 1905 World Series Cont” is in sale since Sunday, July 7, 2019.
