As a successful shipping magnate and entrepreneur, in 1961 George Steinbrenner purchased the Cleveland Pipers of the upstart American Basketball League. It was his first attempt at professional sports ownership, a tenure which ended after the Pipers were not granted entrance into the NBA for the 1963 season. Presented is a double-sided 1962 Cleveland Pipers player contract for former University of Kentucky standout John Cox. The reverse is penned by “The Boss” in blue ink with the endorsement presenting in the (“8-9”) range. Full photo LOA from JSA.
