Date Published: 1970

Description: 1 page, 9 x 6 inches, no place, no date, but definitely written in 1970 based on a reference by Nagle. In this letter, he responds to a noted baseball memorabilia collector named Dick Debkins, who had requested a signed photograph. Nagle wrote his response on the back of Debkins' letter, in full: "Dear Dick - Am very happy to sign the card + the picture. The latter brought back many happy memories as it was taken in 1905. Just think that was 65 years ago. Am wondering if you know that I have written a book about my baseball experiences. It contains 17 photographs - several of myself in uniform + also in citizens clothes. Casey Stengel wrote the foreword + there is a fine picture of him. Also a picture of the first 10 baseball players to be inducted into the National Baseball Players Hall of Fame. It was taken in Toots Shor's restaurant in N.Y. + he is in the picture. The picture I am so proud of though is the one of Ty Cobb + Honus Wagner shaking hands in uniform. The two greatest ball players that ever lived. If you would like a copy just send me a check or M.O. for $5.00 + I will send you an autographed copy, prepaid. Walter H. Nagle." Natural folds; near fine condition.

Comments: Nagle pitched in the Major Leagues in 1911, playing for both the Pittsburgh Pirates and Boston Red Sox.

I recently purchased a book from you, having searched via the internet. The book came yesterday and this note commends your service and quick response. I was impressed with the care taken to wrap the book with tissue paper and several layers of corrugated cardboard, as well as the speed with which you must have sent it out. It arrived only a week after the order, in spite of the Thanksgiving holiday. I thank you for the attention paid to the quality of my order and hope we will do more business. - Steve C.
