Presented here is Harry Walker’s Uniform Player’s Contract with the St. Louis Cardinals for the 1946 season. This was Walker’s first year back in the Majors after two seasons serving his country in World War II, but experienced instant success upon his return, setting a new career-high in home runs for the 98-58 Cardinals. The Cardinals advanced to the World Series against the Boston Red Sox, where Walker’s .412 batting average and six RBI helped power the Cards to a World Series title in a thrilling seven-game series. Walker was the batter for Enos Slaughter’s “Mad Dash” in Game 7, driving in Slaughter for the winning run of the series in one of baseball’s most iconic moments. Walker, the son of one Dixie Walker and the brother of another, won the National League batting title in 1947, hitting .363 with the Cardinals and the Philadelphia Phillies. Harry and Dixie Walker are the only pair of siblings to each win a batting title in the Major Leagues. This offered contract is for the value of $8,500 and it was signed on March 5th, 1946 by Walker and Sam Breadon, the owner of the Cardinals. Both signatures have been written in black pen. The contract displays minor wear and staining, however the signatures are unaffected. This contract comes with a LOA from JSA (Z67417).
