Saving team letterhead and envelopes?

When is bad news good?

I’m sure most collectors can’t wait to recycle the “too busy to sign” form letters, or the price list from the team wanting donations for any autograph.

Think twice. 

While those documents will never measure up to revealing hand-written correspondence from a player, anything with the team logo will look official. Collectors are seeking out official team stationery (including envelopes) and letterhead.

Just try finding such items from clubs like the Montreal Expos or Washington Senators. 

Besides, it would serve the next generation of historians and collectors well to see how teams and players addressed autographs way back in 2016.
