Description

Presented is an historic multi-signed baseball that is a veritable Who’s Who of the early Baseball Hall of Fame. This circa 1920-1924 OAL Johnson sphere contains (24) signatures from a variety of sources including the 1924-1925 Yankees, pre-war stars and baseball legends such as Ruth, Cobb, Heilmann, Speaker, Collins, Sisler and Hoyt. The ball is covered with a wafer-thin coating of period shellac that has protected the autographs from the elements. Otherwise, the surface of this relic grades a (“4”) with multiple contusions and moderate soiling throughout. Each script was placed in blue or black ink via a steel-tip fountain pen. Better names include Sweet Spot: Ruth (d.1948, “6”), West Panel: Pennock (d.1948, “5”), East Panel: Ward (d.1961, “3”), E. Scott (d.1960, “3”); North Panel: Veach (d.1945, “5”), Schalk (d.1970, “6”), E. Collins (d.1951, “5”), South Panel: G. Sisler (d.1973, “5”), Speaker (d.1958, “5”), Cobb (d.1961, “5”) and Heilmann (d.1951). Includes full picture LOA from James Spence Authentications.
