1928 Chicago Cubs Team-Signed Ball with Wilson, Cuyler, Hartnett, and McCarthy

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $840

Official National League (Heydler) ball signed in blue fountain pen by twenty-five members of the 1928 Chicago Cubs, including Wilson, Cuyler, Hartnett, McCarthy (Mgr.), Jones, Tincup, Holley, Nehf, Butler, Heathcoate, Maguire, McMillan (sweet spot), Kelly (sweet spot), Stephenson (sweet spot), Malone, Grimm, Beck, and Bush. Signatures range from "2" to "6," averaging "3/4." This ball actually dates to the 1926 to 1927 manufacturing period; however, the appearance of Tincup's signature on the ball conclusively dates it to the 1928 season (Tincup only played for the Cubs in 1928). The ball has been coated with a layer of protective shellac and displays a number of minor surface abrasions. In Very Good condition overall. LOA from James Spence/JSA.  Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $840
