1950s New York Giants Legends Signed Baseball with Mel Ott, Carl Hubbell, and Willie Mays

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,963

Baseball signed by three of the greatest players in Giants franchise history: Mel Ott, Willie Mays, and Carl Hubbell. Each player has signed the ball on a separate side panel, with the signatures grading as follows: Ott (black fountain pen; "6'), Mays (blue fountain pen; "7"), and Hubbell (black fountain pen; "6/7"). The signature of Mel Ott, who died in 1958, is especially desirable and the fact that ball can be displayed as an Ott single only adds to its appeal. It should also be noted that the Mays signature on this ball is an early version, indicating that it was probably obtained during the 1950s. A Spalding logo is evident on a side panel, but the stampings on the label are no longer visible. The ball is darkly toned and displays a layer of protective shellac. A few minor scuffs and abrasions are evident, as are two tiny areas of splitting along the seam line. In Very Good condition overall. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $2,963
