Hall of Famer Joseph McCarthy managed in the major leagues for 24 seasons. His winning percentage of .614 is the highest in baseball history and his seven World Championships are a record shared only with another Yankee manager, Casey Stengel. McCarthy's Yankees teams were outstanding. They seldom had a difficult pennant race and, by and large, they overwhelmed their World Series foes. In spite of being blessed with talented players, many experts consider McCarthy among the greatest managers of all time. He was a great double-play teacher, but his real strengths lay in his mental alertness. He seldom made the same mistake twice, missed little on the field, and had an amazing memory for minute details. Joe DiMaggio said, "Never a day went by when you didn't learn something from McCarthy."

Presented here is Joe McCarthy’s standard "Uniform Manager's Contract" dated May 2, 1933. The multi-year contract for seasons 1933-35 is signed by both "Joseph V. McCarthy" and "E. G. Barrow." The contract has also been signed by American League President "William Harridge" on the front. All of the signatures have been boldly scripted in black fountain pen. New York Yankees contracts from this era are highly prized by collectors, especially those of key Hall of Famers. The contract measures 8.5” by 11” inches and is in Excellent condition with typical folds. Full LOA from PSA/DNA (AG01400).
