Nice collection of 3 items from the estate of Dudley Branom, long time minor league first baseman who played one season in the majors, 1927 with the Philadelphia Athletics.
1) Branom's signed 1927 Contract to play for the Athletics in 1927 for the sum of $6,000. Contract signed by Branom, American League President Ban Johnson(HOF) March 25, 1927 (8-9/10 quality), and two others. Program in decent shape with some light staining here and there. The two other signatures (both Schroeder) plus some of the other blue ink on page 2 (Johnson on page 4) has spread out somewhat and bleed through the rest of the contract. All in all, nice piece.

3) 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" 1927 Philadelphia Athletics Spring Training Schedule and Roster. About VG condition with "5001 Palace Hotel" written in pencil on front.
