As a businesswoman in a primarily man's world, Effa Manley wanted to be a winner. Though the only woman among an industry of male owners, Manley got her wish in 1946, when the Newark Eagles, owned by her and her husband Abe, won the Negro League World Series, defeating the Kansas City Monarchs. Her career is a testament to her commitment to baseball and civil rights - and to her vision and dedication to creating respect for Negro Leagues baseball.
To date, she is the only woman inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame (in 2006 after passing away in 1981). Offered is a one page handwritten letter on her personal letterhead, dated November 4, 1975, signed by Effa Manley. PSA/DNA has encapsulated the letter and graded the signature a NM 7. In her letter, written to Negro League baseball historian and author John Holway she writes. Dear John - Your book was supposed to be published last week, and I was sure I would hear from you as soon as it was.
