1952 American League All-Star Team-Signed Ball with Paige
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $960
Official American League (Harridge) ball signed in blue or black ink by the following twenty-seven members of the 1952 American League All-Star team: Avila, Bauer, Bauman (trainer), Berra (twice), D. DiMaggio, Fain, Fox, Garcia, Hegan, Jensen, Joost, Lemon, McDougald, Minoso, Mitchell, Paige, Raschi, Reynolds, Rizzuto (sweet spot), Robinson, Kellner, Rosen, Shantz, Silvera, Turner (coach), Wertz, and Yost. The vintage blue-ink notation “All Star Game 52’” appears on the sweet spot. The signatures range from "7" to "10," averaging "8/9." The ball is very lightly toned throughout; otherwise it's in Near Mint condition. This ball originates from the personal collection of Bob Bauman, who was a longtime Major League trainer with both the St. Louis Browns (1937-1953) and St. Louis Cardinals (1954-1988). The ball, along with eighty-three other team balls from Bauman's collection, was originally consigned by the Bauman family to REA's May 2010 auction, where it was offered as part of a larger lot. It has been consigned to this auction by the original purchaser. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $960
