Contract, signed “Edwin L. Mathews, Jr.,” four pages on two adjoining sheets, 8.5 x 11, January 21, 1954. National League uniform player’s contract in which Eddie Mathews agrees to render "skilled services as a baseball player during the year 1954" for the Milwaukee Braves, for a salary of $35,000. Signed at the conclusion in blue ballpoint by Mathews, who adds his address and social security number, and countersigned by Braves General Manager John J. Quinn and National League President Warren Giles. In fine condition. In 1953, Mathews led the league in home runs with 47 which encouraged the Braves to give him a huge pay raise. He did not disappoint, hitting 40 home runs to compliment the arrival of Aaron in '54.
