Lot # 787 (of 1137)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Circa 1970 Multisigned Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies Ball (27 Signatures) with DiMaggio, Wheat, Schalk, and Rice

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,185

Official National League (Giles) ball signed in blue ink by the following twenty-seven Hall of Fame players: Mantle (on ball label), Roush (sweet spot), Medwick (sweet spot), Grove, Hubbell, DiMaggio, Manush, Feller, Rice, Appling, Lyons, Gehringer, Hoyt, Coveleski, Ruffing, Schalk, Mathews, Traynor, Carey, Dickey, Aaron, Musial (purple marker), Wheat, Dean, L. Waner, Frisch, and Stengel. The blue-ink notation "Hall of Fame" is printed on the ball label above Mantle's signature. Based on the fact that the signatures of some players included on this ball passed away as early as 1972 (Zack Wheat and Pie Traynor), many or most of these signatures were very likely obtained at a Hall of Fame induction ceremony circa 1970. The signatures range from "7" to "10," averaging "8." Near Mint to Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,185
