Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $8,700.00
Official National League (Frick) ball signed in either blue or black ink by the following twelve Hall of Famers: Jimmie Foxx (slightly to the right of the sweet spot), Mel Ott, Ed Walsh, Ty Cobb, Cy Young, Rogers Hornsby, Fred Clarke, Tris Speaker, Kid Nichols (placed tightly against stitching), Pie Traynor, George Sisler, and Chas. Gehringer. Additionally, a clubhouse signature of Mickey Cochrane also appears on the ball. Of special importance with reference to the "500 Home Run Club" are the signatures of Mel Ott ("8") and Jimmy Foxx ("7/8"). Foxx's signature is just to the right of the sweet spot and Ott's is adjacent, near the sweet spot. This is a very special, unique, and ideal placement, as these two key "500 Home Run Club" signatures can be displayed together, making this ball ideal for a "500 Home Run Club" signed-ball display. All of the other signatures on the ball, of course, are each also very desirable high-caliber Hall of Famers. The signatures range in grade from "6" to "8," averaging a "7" overall. The ball is lightly toned and all of the manufacturer's stampings bold, crisp, and distinct. The ball is in Excellent to Mint condition. LOAs from James Spence/JSA and Steve Grad, Mike Gutierrez & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $8,700.00
