On Sept. 10, 2008 the Phillies trailed the rival NY Mets by 3-1/2 games. They then proceeded to close out the season on a 13-3 tear to win the NL East. The team stayed hot and swept through the playoffs to an eventual World Series tilt with the Tampa Bay Rays. On this official MLB ball are signatures from 25 members of the club. Manager Charlie Manuel on the sweet spot. Also, Adam Eaton, Kyle Kendrick, Cole Hamels, Scott Eyre, Tadahito Iguchi, Carlos Ruiz, Shane Victorino and more. To be honest, as is too often the case with modern sports signatures these are tough to read and the names above are known because they at least put their uniform number next to their "signature". The condition of the ball and the darkness of the autographs are both terrific but it just seems sometimes like anybody born after 1970 is incapable of signing nicely, thus the Charlie Manuel looks great. Auction LOA from JSA.
