IT CAME FROM eBAY: Lefty Grove’s Tax Returns!

In the grand tradition of previous blog entries on weird baseball auctions, I now give you…LEFTY GROVE’S TAX RETURNS!

Screen Shot 2015-01-08 at 2.00.02 PMYes, you can, for the low price of $995.00, own Lefty Grove’s tax returns from 1925. His rookie year! Yes, YOU can own the tax returns of a Hall of Famer. It’s not quite Stan Musial’s wallet or Reggie Jackson’s pal Mr. Peanut, but it’s something.

So… what did Lefty make his rookie year?

Screen Shot 2015-01-08 at 2.12.44 PMOkay, so…. he made $7404.00. That’s $101,600 in 2015 money! That would be below the minimum MLB salary today!

Also, I like the occupation of “Ball Player”. That’s a cool thing to have on a tax form.
