Ossie Bluege spent his entire 18-year Major League career with the Washington Senators, debuting in 1922 and playing a key role on the Senators 1924 World Series-winning team. Bluege was an expert practitioner of inside baseball and a member of the 1935 American League All-Star team. Over his nearly two-decade career, Bluege hit .272 with 43 homers and 848 RBI. Bluege later managed the Senators for four seasons, and as a scout was responsible for convincing Harmon Killebrew to forego his dual-sport scholarship to the University of Oregon and sign with the Senators. Killebrew specifically thanked Bluege for his scouting recommendation at his Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 1984.

Offered here is Bluege’s contract with the Washington Senators for the 1934 season. Bluege, in his age-33 campaign, played in 99 games as a utility infielder and pinch hitter, collecting a .246 batting average with 11 RBI for the defending American League pennant-winners. This contract signed Bluege to a deal worth $7,500 for the year, and it has been signed by both Bluege and Clark Griffith in black pen on January 12th, 1934. This item comes with a LOA from JSA.
