Mickey Mantle/Joe DiMaggio/Willie Mays/Duke Snider Signed Ball
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $960
Official 1983 All-Star Game ball signed by the four greatest center fielders in New York City baseball history: Mickey Mantle (blue ink, sweet spot, grading "9/10"), Joe DiMaggio (black ink, South panel, "6"), Willie Mays (blue ink, North panel, "9/10"), and Duke Snider (blue ink, West panel, "9/10"). The 1983 All-Star Game, held in Chicago, marked the 50th anniversary of the baseball's midsummer classic. As part of the festivities, Major League Baseball invited every former All-Star participant to take part in the pre-game ceremonies. Naturally, DiMaggio, Mantle, Mays, and Snider were all in attendance at the game, and it is likely that this ball was obtained during that time. The ball is slightly toned, with a few stray lines of light discoloration (one of which affects the "J" in Joe DiMaggio's signature). In Very Good condition overall. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $960
