Cy Young Single-Signed Ball
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $2,232.50
This Wilson "Middle Atlantic League" official minor league ball has been signed by Cy Young in blue ink on a side panel. Young's signature, scripted in his usual large letters, occupies the entire side panel and grades "5" overall. A Cy Young single-signed ball is a classic, and is a lot rarer than most collectors realize. Young passed away in 1955, long before the preference of collectors for single-signed baseballs was firmly established. He remains the game's all-time leader in wins with 511. The ball is very crisp and clean with the manufacturer's stampings extremely bold and legible. In Excellent to Mint condition. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $2,232.50
