1923 Christy Mathewson Signed Baseball

Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $10,925.00

This Official National League baseball with red and blue stitching is signed by Hall of Fame pitcher Christy Mathewson on a side panel. Another notation on a separate panel reads in part "Braves...1923." Blemishes on the ball's surface suggest there may have once been additional writing, which has long ago been removed. The signature grades a "6" overall and the ball has toned from age. Displays beautifully as a single-signed Mathewson ball. This ball was originally part of the Halper Collection, and was offered in the famous Halper auction as lot #1281, where it realized $8,625. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $5,000/$10,000. SOLD FOR $10,925.00
