Having inherited The Sporting News from his father, J.G. Taylor Spink took a hands-on approach, holding the position of publisher from 1914 through 1962 as the publication expanded to showcase color photos and cover football and boxing (as well as its established baseball content). These (16) correspondence pieces were composed and signed by Spink. Each details editorial or sporting endeavors. The letters date from 1938 to 1941 and are signed by Spink in black ink. His curvaceous pennings project (“9”) strength throughout. Auction LOA from JSA.
