Cy Young Single-Signed Ball - PSA/DNA
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,800
Official National League (Giles) ball signed in green ink on a side panel by Hall of Fame Pitcher Cy Young. Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA/DNA (autograph graded 3, ball graded 5, resulting in an overall grade of 4). A Cy Young single-signed ball is a classic, and is much rarer than most collectors realize. Young passed away in 1955, long before the preference of collectors for single-signed baseballs was firmly established. This is only the fifth Cy Young single-signed ball we have offered in the past ten years and it represents a fine mid grade example. Based upon the stampings, this ball dates to the 1952 to 1957 manufacturing period, meaning Young signed it sometime within the last four years of his life. Full LOA from PSA/DNA and Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $4,000+. SOLD FOR $4,800
