1970s Multisigned Hall of Fame and Stars Ball with Clemente and DiMaggio
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,320
Official National League (Giles) ball signed in both blue and black ink by twenty-three former diamond stars, including nine Hall of Famers. The two most significant signatures are those of Roberto Clemente (side panel, grading "9") and Joe DiMaggio (sweet spot, grading "8/9"). The remaining signers include Ron Santo, Tom Seaver, Lou Brock, Al Kaline, Willie Stargell, Ernie Banks, Bob Gibson, Ron Fairly, Don Buford, Tommy Tresh, Bobby Murcer, Ken McMullen, Tim McCarver, Ron Brand, Tommy Agee, Reggie Smith, Vada Pinson, Darold Knowles, and Curt Blefary. Signatures range from "8" to "10," averaging "9," with the exception of Murcer and Buford (slightly faded, each grading "6/7"). The ball, which dates to the 1958 to 1969 manufacturing period, remains in Near Mint condition. Based upon the combination of signatures, this ball was most likely obtained at a banquet dinner or similar function in the late 1960s or early 1970s. LOA from James Spence/JSA.
