Yankee Contract for Sale

Yankees For those who collect contract memorabilia, a seller on eBay has an original 1919 baseball contract under which the minor league club in Toledo sells the contract of pitcher Paul Carpenter to the New York Yankees.  What makes the contract interesting is that it's signed not only by Yanks owner Col. Jacob Ruppert, but by Hall of Fame catcher Roger Bresnahan, then an executive with Toldeo.  Bresnahan is the guy who invented the shin guard.  Sale ends Thursday.
