    In his 27th season as a National League umpire, Lee Weyer had just finished a 1988 game between the Cubs and Giants.  And as suddenly as a called strike, the venerable arbiter fell dead from a heart attack.  SI once polled Senior Circuit catchers, and discovered that Weyer was regarded the league's best at balls-and-strikes.  His professional dependability commonly warranted his working the World Series, and this ball (which was possibly game-used) remembers that Fall Classic.  On a side panel and extending into the sweet spot, Weyer itemizes the final scores of each of those five games between Cincinnati and Baltimore.  And then, personalized on another panel, he signed this ONL (Feeney) ball.  The inscriptions and autograph are all placed in ballpoint, and are about 9 in strength.
