The glove originates from the Michael Lopota collection and includes a copy of a handwritten letter from Hooper reading in part, "The glove which I sent you recently under separate cover was one worn out by me. However I am not sure whether it was while I was with the Boston Red Sox or the Chicago White Sox..." Hooper along with Duffy Lewis and Tris Speaker formed one of the finest outfield combinations in Major League history. Among the earliest well documented Hall of Fame player gloves to have entered the marketplace. Includes LOA from Hunt Auctions, auction LOA from JSA, and copy of Hooper letter: EX
