In 1926, as a rookie Lazzeri quickly secured his spot on the Yankees' Murderer's Row by smacking 18 homeruns and driving in 114 runs, unheard of numbers for any second baseman not named Rogers Hornsby.  For the next 11 seasons, Lazzeri averaged 79 runs, 14 home runs, 96 RBI and 12 stolen bases including seven seasons with over 100 RBI and five seasons batting .300 or higher. During this time the Yankees won six American League pennants and five World Series championships. This official 1935 contract is for a salary of $12,000 and is signed by Lazzeri and AL president Harridge. The signature of Yankees team owner Jacob Ruppert appears in the hand of team president Ed Barrow. In 1936, Lazzeri enjoyed the beginning of the second Yankees dynasty with DiMaggio serving as the next Italian American superstar, only to be let go after the 1937 season in favor of the young slugging Joe Gordon. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1991. The contract is in excellent condition overall with minor wear and crease from folding. LOA from PSA/DNA.
