Classic June 2005
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Offered are a quarter-dozen exceptions: three baseballs that did not promptly exit the premises upon coming into "contact" with the superstars who have signed them. Included are two single signed spheres that range from near-white to snow white. The players who have penned their sweet spot, blue-ballpoint signatures (grading "10") have combined to launch 2,828 home runs! Included are balls autographed by: Barry Bonds - an OML (Selig) ball with an inscribed notation of "20/25" as well as a gold-character stamping upon the north panel that reads "Barry Bonds #25 - '500 Club' 500 Hrs/500 SB - June 23, 2003;" and Mark McGwire - OML (Selig) sphere with an inscription of "2000" (signed on a side panel, as is McGwire's custom). Also included is a remarkably clean, OAL (Brown) ball signed by 10 members of the vaunted "500 Home Run" club. The signatures ("10") include those of Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, Reggie Jackson, Harmon Killebrew, Mickey Mantle (s/s), Eddie Mathews, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Frank Robinson and Mike Schmidt. The snow white sphere still has ample space remaining to accommodate the signatures of the six subsequently joining club members. LOA from Steve Grad/PSA DNA and LOA from James Spence Authentication.
