WILLIE "CURLY" WILLIAMS
The legendary Negro League power-hitter signs his name in blue ink
Autograph note signed: "Congratulations Frank!!/ Willie "Curly" Williams" in blue ink. 5x3 printed card featuring a 1x1½ photo of Williams. Willie "Curly" Williams (1925-2011) was a power-hitting shortstop and third baseman who began his career in the Negro Leagues, most memorably for the Newark Eagles (1945-1948), but also around the country for over ten years. He made it to the Major Leagues in 1950 with the Chicago White Sox, but never played past the AAA team due to lingering prejudice and attitudes towards black baseball players. Williams was best known for his big batting numbers, posting .391 in his final season in the Northern Saskatchewan Baseball League. Corners slightly rounded. Ink shows through slightly on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
