An innovative force in establishing minor league affiliates and, of course, breaking baseball’s color barrier, former executive Branch Rickey signed this Uniform Player’s Contract back in 1930. The one page document has fine print legal details and typewritten notations of the principals and stipend. Drawn up for former Dodger pitcher Victor A. (Vic) Lombardi, the document is signed by both Branch and Hollywood Baseball Club manager Fred Haney (both “8-9” strength). The page is crisp and has normal compacting folds.
