Lot # 990 (of 1866)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Hank Greenberg Single-Signed Ball

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $948

Official American League (Brown) ball signed in black felt-tip marker across the sweet spot by Hall of Fame first baseman Hank Greenberg. The signature displays light bleeding/brushing and grades "7" overall. Hank Greenberg single-signed balls have always been particularly scarce and very high on collectors' want lists. Today, the demand outweighs the supply by a considerable margin. The reason for that, in part, is because Greenberg passed away in 1986, just before single-signed baseballs became universally recognized as the ideal and values began to skyrocket in response to collector demand. Based upon the manufacturer's stampings, it appears that this ball was produced between the years 1984 and 1990. Therefore, it must have been signed sometime within the last two years of Greenberg's life. The ball is slightly toned; otherwise in Near Mint condition. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $948
