ALS, one page both sides, 8.5 x 11, American Base Ball Club of Philadelphia with an image of Shibe Park letterhead, October 30, 1918. Letter to Frank. In part (with grammar and spelling retained): “Our baseball season was not a success Boston won in our league and beat the Cubs in the World Series. We closed our season on Labor day and then the prize series started right after and went up to September 10th none of the clubs made any money as the players were being called into services it meant that the interest was lost while Boston lost a great many players they had the pitching staff intact which meant everything…The last couple of days make me think that the end is near don’t see how Germany can go on much longer it has been a wonderful battle all through and the English & French deserve a great deal of credit for sticking by so long and which has enabled us to get into the fight in good form. It surely makes one feel good to read of all the good thing that is now being said about our boys we may have been a little late in coming in but no one can say now that we should have stayed out and we have made it possible to rid the world of the Kaiser and his crowd for all time.” In very good to fine condition, with intersecting folds, one through a single letter of signature, scattered toning and soiling, and mild show-through from writing on reverse. The Red Sox, led by Babe Ruth, beat the Chicago Cubs in six games, their last before an 86 year drought. This series was held in early September due to the World War I ‘Work or Fight’ order that ended the season on September 1. Pre-certified Steve Grad/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA
