When my mother was teaching in New York in the early 70s, she had Anne Baxter’s daughter, Maginel, as a student. There was a social studies project that seems to have confused Maginel, so Ms. Baxter wrote a letter to my mother asking her for help. Maginel was able to complete the project by arranging a tour of the Palace Theatre where Ms. Baxter was performing in Applause. Included in this lot are the original handwritten, signed letter Anne Baxter wrote to my mother, the envelope it came to school in, also in Anne Baxter’s own hand, the note Anne Baxter gave her daughter on the day of the tour and a Playbill from the run of Applause. Note to School reads: Dec. Perhaps you could send a note home describing what I can do to be constructive. Many Thanks, Sincerely, Anne Baxter Galt. Note to Maginel, written on Anne Baxter’s note paper reads: Dear Maginel: Hope you and your class enjoy the tour. Be sure and thank Mr. Note from Playbill, Mr. Christy was the stage manager and Mr. Maganero was the Head Electrician at the Palace Theatre. Playbill is in good shape, though has damage to back from where it was mounted in a scrapbook. Provided to establish provenance of letters.

Coach and executive in the All-America Football Conference. (AAFC) and National Football League. Brown was both the co-founder and first coach of the Cleveland Browns. A team named after him, and later played a role in founding the Cincinnati Bengals. His teams won seven league championships in a professional coaching career spanning 25 seasons. Brown began his coaching career at Severn School. In 1931 before becoming the head football coach at Massillon Washington High School. Where he grew up. His high school teams lost only 10 games in 11 seasons. He was then hired at Ohio State University. And coached the school to its first national football championship in 1942. After World War II, he became head coach of the Browns, who won all four AAFC championships before joining the NFL in 1950. Brown coached the Browns to three NFL championships – in 1950, 1954 and 1955 – but was fired in January 1963 amid a power struggle with team owner Art Modell. In 1968, Brown co-founded and was the first coach of the Bengals. He retired from coaching in 1975 but remained the Bengals’ team president until his death in 1991. The Bengals named their home stadium Paul Brown Stadium. In honor of Brown. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Brown is credited with a number of American football innovations. He was the first coach to use game film to scout opponents, hire a full-time staff of assistants, and test players on their knowledge of a playbook. He invented the modern face mask, the practice squad. And the draw play. He also played a role in breaking professional football’s color barrier. Bringing the first African-Americans. To play pro football in the modern era onto his teams. Despite these accomplishments, Brown was not universally liked. He was strict and controlling, which often brought him into conflict with players who wanted a greater say in play-calling. These disputes, combined with Brown’s failure to consult Modell on major personnel decisions, led to his firing as the Browns’ coach in 1963. Additionally, I slip all autographed photos inside sturdy photo-protective sleeves. In most cases, using Jack Smalling’s baseball address lists and other assorted address lists, I wrote to both active and retired baseball players, sending them letters, requests for signatures, and self-addressed-stamped envelopes. This is how I obtained thousands of autographs. I stand by every item I sell. All the old time autograph dealers know me and the professional authenticators will vouch for my reputation as well. I do this on a part time basis, so sometimes emails take a day. PLEASE NOTE: Most items come with certificates of authenticity from outside companies (JSA and PSA predominantly; they are the best).
