Contract, signed “Alfonso Lopez,” four pages on two adjoining sheets, 8.5 x 11, March 9, 1933. National League uniform player's contract in which Al Lopez agrees to render "skilled service as a baseball player in connection with all games of the Club during the year 1933" for the Brooklyn Dodgers, for a salary of $8,250. Signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by Lopez, and countersigned by Dodgers owner and president Stephen McKeever. In fine condition. The 1933 season saw a conclusive shift in Brooklyn's team name: having been called the 'Superbas' and 'Robins' in the past, 1933 marked the first time that 'Dodgers' was formally used on both home and road uniforms. A modest hitter known for his defense behind the plate, Lopez had his best offensive campaign in 1933, hitting .301, stealing ten bases, and finishing tenth in the National League MVP voting.
