REAVES H. BAYSINGER
Signed letter of the Syracuse University football coach from 1947-1948
Typed letter signed: "R.H. 'Ribs' Baysinger" in black ink. 1 page, 8½x11. Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York, October 11, 1948. On his lettered head as coach of football, to "Dear Eddie", in full: "Thanks very much for your letter. Enclosed is a program of the Syracuse University--Penn State football game, which contains photographs of the coaches and squad, I hope this is of interest to you. Thanks again for your kind wishes, and if you should happen to be in the vicinity where we are playing, I hope you will give us an opportunity to have you as a guest at the game. Sincerely yours,". Reaves H. Baysinger (1902-1994) served as head coach of the Syracuse University football team from 1947-1948. Taking over after Munn abandoned the position at the end of the 1946-1947 season, Coach Baysinger did not achieve the impressive record hoped of him and his squad, going just 4-14. Baysinger was considered for the job based on his years playing and coaching basketball, football and baseball. He also was an All-American football guard for Syracuse. Normal mailing folds. Slightly creased. Light adhesive residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
