CLAUDE W. OSTEEN 1986 ORIGINAL SIGNED MLB TOPPS BASEBALL CARD CONTRACT - $3K APPRAISAL VALUE!
A one of a kind, unique and original contract signed by Major League Baseball (MLB) player, Claude W. Osteen, granting the Topps Company (Topps Chewing Gum, Incorporated) permission to use and license his image in promoting their baseball card from 1986.
It's difficult to believe a player that earned thousands agreed, just about 35 years ago, to accept $5 on the spot, with a $250 annual payment for as long as he's an active member and player of Major League Baseball and an additional $75 for extending the contract an additional two years, for the licensing of his image. Claude Wilson Osteen made his MLB debut in 1957 with the Cincinnati Reds, later playing with the Texas Rangers, Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals, and Chicago White Sox. He earned both the All-Star and Gold Glove Award three times. After retiring, he worked and coached for several MLB teams. He is remembered as a reliable and talented pitcher in the Major League Baseball.
