Oser August 2002
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This spectacular signed ONL (Giamatti) baseball commemorates four of the greatest lifetime achievements in the history of baseball and has been inscribed, respectively, by each of the career leaders in home runs, hits, strikeouts and stolen bases. The sweet spot has been signed "Hank Aaron - All Time H.R. King", an adjacent side panel has been inscribed "Pete Rose - All Time Hit King," another side panel is signed "Rickey Henderson - All Time S.B. King" and a third panel is inscribed "Nolan Ryan - All Time K King." Each of the signatures, penned in blue ink, grades "10". There is an extremely minor area of light discoloration along the Ryan panel, overall in Near Mint condition. This ball was signed at a private signing show a number of years ago and, given the temperamental nature of both Henderson and Aaron, it is most likely that the four will never be reunited again at such an event. Collectors place heightened value on autographed items with inscriptions, a ball inscribed by four record holders should cause a frenzy! LOA from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA.
