    Description

    Ken Bowersox Signed 1995 World Series Baseball (Unflown). An official Rawlings ball signed in blue ink: "Ken Bowersox/ CDR STS-73/ '95 World Series/ First/ Pitch From/ Orbit". The ceremonial first pitch before Game Five of the 1995 World Series on Thursday, October 26, 1995, was thrown by Commander Ken Bowersox, onboard the space shuttle Columbia. The ceremony was transmitted from space via satellite and played on the Cleveland Indians' scoreboard at Jacobs Field and viewed by a nationwide audience. This was the first time a World Series first pitch thrower was not at the ballpark to make the pitch. A very cool item for both the Space and Sports collector. Tough autograph. Excellent.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
