1933 New York Giants and Washington Senators Signed Ball (World Series) with Ott and Seven Other Hall of Famers
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $840
Official American League ball (Harridge) signed in black fountain pen by twenty-seven participants in the 1933 World Series, including all four umpires: George Moriarty, Charlie Moran, Cy Pfirman (on the ball label), and Red Ormsby (one the ball label). The Senators signatures appearing on this ball are those of Heinie Manush (sweet spot), Joe Cronin (sweet spot), Sam Rice, Goose Goslin, Ossie Bluege, Luke Sewell, Joe Kuhel, Buddy Myer, Jack Russell, Johnny Kerr, Fred Schulte, and Nick Altrock. The Giants signatures are those of Mel Ott, Bill Terry, Travis Jackson, Carl Hubbell, Gus Mancuso, Blondy Ryan, Chuck Dressen, Herman Bell, Lefty O'Doul, Jo-Jo Moore, and Hughie Critz. Signatures range from "3" to "7," averaging "5." The Giants defeated the Senators in five games in the 1933 World Series, thanks in large part to the mastery of mound ace Carl Hubbell, who won two games while compiling a 0.00 ERA in twenty innings of work. Dual-signed World Series team balls are exceedingly rare, especially those including all four umpires, making this a unique and desirable souvenir from the Senator's final World Series appearance. The ball displays light-to-moderate toning, including a few small abrasions. In Very Good condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $840
