Classic June 2008
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Likely compiled at different junctures in the grand game's history, both of these Official Major League balls are embellished with the signatures of some of the all-time greats. The theme here is "superstars"—and the compliant signees filled the bill nicely! While the names are alluring enough, the strength and clarity of these black or blue ink pennings merit "9-10" (mostly "10") assessment throughout. Includes: 1) ONL (Harridge) - clean and creamy with 15 ballpoint scriptings by Coveleski, Dickey, DiMaggio (sweet spot), Feller, Glenn, Gomez, Grove, Haines, Henrich, Hoyt, Leonard, MacPhail, Rice, Stengel and B. Williams (inscribed "Best Wishes"); 2) OAL (MacPhail) - clean and lightly toned w/an uneven coat of shellac. The 24 signatures include Aparicio, Banks, Coveleski, Cronin, DiMaggio ("7"), Drysdale, Feller, Gehringer, Greenberg, Grimes, Herman, Hoyt, Hubbell, Irvin, Lemon (s/s), Lindstrom, Lopez, Mays (secretarial), Musial, Roberts, Rousch, Sewell, Snider and T. Williams. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA.
