Classic October 2007
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
With their second straight American League East title well in hand, the 1970 Baltimore Orioles reeled off 11 successive wins to close the regular season—only to extend the streak to 17 straight with six postseason triumphs en route to the second World Series title in five years. Offered here is an OAL (Cronin) ball signed by 29 members of the only team in baseball history to win at least 108 games in two straight seasons. This medium-toned sphere showcases black or blue ballpoint signatures that project "5-7" overall strength (with a few lesser). Includes: Baylor, Beene, Belanger, Blair, Buford, Crowley, Cuellar, Drabowsky, Etchebarren, Frey (coach), Grich, Hall, Hardin, Hendricks, Hunter (coach, sweet spot), Johnson, Lopez, McNally, Motton, Oates, Palmer, Powell, Richert, B. Robinson, F. Robinson, Salmon, Watt, Weaver (Mgr, s/s) and one indiscernible scripting. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA.
