Throughout time, baseballs have been among, if not the, very favorite single items to get anyone of importance to sign. While it's not uncommon to see non-baseball figures signing baseballs, it's very difficult to locate specific individuals because while Pete Rose might have signed 100,000 of balls in his life, it's safe to assume Jimmy Stewart has signed many fewer. Offered here are eight different official baseballs signed by celebrities in entertainment or other sports. Jimmy Stewart (signed very late in life on a NL Leonard Colemen ball), Joe Paterno in marker on the sweet spot, Y.A. Tittle (Mint 9.5+ by PSA), Mario Andretti (NM-MT 8 by PSA), Basketball Hall of Famer Paul Arizin (bright and clean but very, very strained effort), boxer Jake LaMotta (in marker on sweet spot), Saved By the Bell's Elizabeth Barkley (nice signature, modest spotting on the ball), and Marlee Matlin (dynamite signature on sweet spot of very heavily-used ball) and Kevin Costner. Auction LOA from JSA.
