Default Charlie "Many Hit" Robertson playing day signed cut

It seems like I continue to pick up unusual Charlie Robertson related items in 2017.
Many thanks to net54's Jeff Potter for selling me this unusual playing day autograph cut of CWS perfect game pitcher Charlie Robertson.
Charlie was obviously having some fun when he signed this ledger or team sheet most likely sometime between 1922-1928. Instead of Charlie, he instead signed it "Many Hit" Robertson, which is an obvious wink that prior to signing it he hurled a no-hit, no-run game that was the first game to ever be called a "perfect game" by the newspaper scribes the next day.
