    Description

    MAGNIFICENT MULTI-SIGNED AUTOGRAPHED BALL. This autographed ball likely served its steward for several years.  The 15 signatures were not applied in a single encounter with stardom, but were instead highly selected requests.  The medium is an unofficial ball with red and black stitching, which probably dates it no newer than the mid-1930's.  Specifically, Walter Johnson (7) and Gus Mancuso occupy the sweet spot.  About the panels (basically 5-8 in quality) there appear Dick Bartell, Ty Cobb (6), Bump Hadley, Babe Ruth (7), Dolf Luque, Rabbit Maranville, Carl Hubbell, Frankie Frisch, Joe Cronin, Mel Ott (8), Ted Williams, Tex Hughson and Jimmie Foxx (6).  The ball itself has great near-white tone, and a fresh and untouched surface.  We have tried to grade the indivudual signatures conservatively, but the photos speak for themselves.  All in all about as pleasing as you could ask for in a ball of this genre and age. Loaded with some of the most desired baseball autographs of the time.  Really a prize autographed ball!   LOA from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA.
