Oser December 2001
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
McDuffie (d. 1968) was known for his immense stamina as a pitcher, and he called himself "Terris the Great." In 1927, while he was playing for the Newark Eagles, McDuffie started 27 games and finished them all! In 1941, he posted a 27-5 record with the pennant-winning Homestead Grays. In three matchups against the great Satchel Paige, McDuffie took 2 of 3 games. He is considered one of the toughest Negro League autographs to obtain as he was a functional illiterate for most of his life. The one-page contract has a piece out of the lower right corner, and is in otherwise nice condition with a very strong signature. LOA from James Spence/PSA DNA.
