The sixth President of the National League was Harry Pulliam (d.1909), who, though respected, was unfortunately unable to fulfill his responsibilities and was very unhappy with the stresses of his jobs (including the infamous Merkle's Boner) and suffered a nervous breakdown. He tragically took his own life soon thereafter, even after being relieved of his duties by his successor John Heydler. Pulliam is the subject of this handwritten letter composed on official National League Letterhead during his 1903-1909 tenure as league president. The handwriting and signature both present in average ("9") condition and the letter has been encased in a 11x12 display alongside a colorful 1903 Harry Pulliam cigar label of approximate 4x4" dimensions (presents EX-MT; only front is visible). Full photo LOA from JSA. This item has a reserve (estimated value: $1500-$3000). More on website.
The letter reads (in full): Dear Sir- Enclosed please find $100 same being my annual dues to the High School alumni society- Very truly Harry C Pulliam.
