Official American League (Barnard) ball signed in either black or blue fountain pen by the following fifteen members of the American League Champion Philadelphia Athletics: Foxx, Simmons, Mack (Mgr.), Grove (sweet spot), Collins, Rommel (sweet spot), Boley, Dykes, Peterson, Moore, Krausse, McDonald, Shores, McNair, and Todt. The signatures of Don Robertshaw and one other individual (illegible) also appear on the ball. (Robertshaw never appeared on a major league roster, but did play in the minor leagues from 1932 to 1934.) Signatures range from "4/5" to "9," averaging "7." It should be noted that the signatures of Foxx, Mack, and Simmons, all of which are among the strongest signatures on the ball, appear together on a side panel. The signatures of Grove and Rommel on the sweet spot are equally bold, making it ideal for display. The ball is moderately soiled, with a few minor abrasions. In Very Good condition overall. LOA from James Spence/JSA.  Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,800
