Hall of Fame Single-Signed Ball Collection (125 Assorted, 78 Different HOFers)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $5,581.25
This large collection of Hall of Fame single-signed balls is comprised of 125 balls, representing seventy-eight different players. Among the Hall of Fame players in the collection are ten members of baseball's elite 500 Home Run Club, fourteen members of the 3,000 Hit Club, and eight members of the 300 Win Club. Thirty of the seventy-eight players represented are now deceased. Unless otherwise noted, all of the balls are either official National League, American League, or Major League balls (production date of each between 1970 and 2006) and all have been single-signed across the sweet spot in either blue or black ink (grading between "8" and "10," with the vast majority grading "9/10"). The number of balls for each player, if more than one, is noted in parentheses. The collection is comprised of the following: Aaron (2), Anderson, Aparicio, Appling (2), Banks, Bench (unofficial ball), Berra, Boggs, Boudreau, Brett, Brock ("6," bleeding, unofficial ball), Bunning, Carew (2, one is personalized "To Steven" on a side panel), Carlton (2), Carter (6, one is an unofficial ball), Dickey (3), Doby, Doerr (2), Drysdale, Durocher, Feller (3), Ferrell, Fingers, Ford (3), B.

Williams (2), Winfield, Wynn, and Yastrzemski (3, two on a side panel, one signed in blue marker). This very substantial collection has a tremendous break value, and could also serve as the foundation for an advanced collection of Hall of Famer single-signed baseballs. Approximately forty-five percent of the balls display light age toning, otherwise the collection is in overall Near Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 125 balls. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+. SOLD FOR $5,581.25
