This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This is a beauty, a very nice-looking Official NL Ford Frick baseball signed by 17 members of the 96-win 1935 St. Louis Cardinals. Near the sweet spot are Ernie Orsatt, Charley Gelbert, and Rip Collins. Also, Leo Durocher, Mike Gonzalez, Bob O'Farrell, Virgil Davis, Jesse Haines, Buzzy Wares, Bill Walker, Ed Heusser, Terry Moore, Dizzy Dean, Bill Hallahan, and Frank Frisch. Pepper Martin and Paul Dean are clubhouse signatures. A "1936" is written in small numbers on a side panel but the only time all of these guys were together was 1935. Either way, both of those teams finished in second place with similar rosters. The ball itself has only some modest and even toning that give it an excellent vintage look and the signatures are quite strong, averaging about 7 of 10 in quality. There is a small dark smudge underneath the end of the Haines autograph and a lighter staining to the laces near the Frisch but overall a pretty impressive vintage item. Auction LOA from JSA.
