The “Tall Tactician” is the author of this dated 1914 Connie Mack (d.1956) TLS on period Philadelphia Athletics team stationery. The content of the frayed single-page correspondence involves a player named “Carson” and Mack’s interest in a scouting report on him. The surface of the letter exhibits moderate fold stress, soiling and thumb impressions. The black steel-tip fountain pen endorsement grades (“8-9”). Full photo LOA from JSA.

The letter is addressed from Jacksonville, Florida--the spring training home for the Athletics from 1914-18.
