A few years after his 1959 induction and a decade before his death, Zach Wheat penned this Mar. 18, 1962 ALS that appears to be a response to a fan who sent him a paper clipping. The 6x9" letter is composed in blue pen and signed on the bottom by Wheat ("9"). Auction LOA from JSA.




Dear Kenneth,

This is a little late but want you to know that I appreciate you sending clipping out of your paper. I know that Humphreys and his wife have been enjoying their trip to Japan not many people have that privilege,

Hope he gets in gear with the Tigers and has a good career there, will be watching with great interest + wish him the very best of luck


Regards, best wishes

Zach D. Wheat
