2002 All-Star Game American and National League Team Signed Balls Display
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,265.00
2002 All-Star Game display features American and National League team signed baseballs in a beautiful and elaborately constructed presentation. The All-Star Game was held in Milwaukee in 2002, and Milwaukee Brewers owner Bud Selig had a number of these special displays assembled to be distributed as special keepsakes to friends and dignitaries. 28 members of the AL and 29 members of NL have signed these 2002 Official All-Star Game balls. The signatures grade "10," and the balls are in Mint condition. Signatures include Torre, Giambi, Rivera, Guardado, Zito, Lowe, Berkman, Rolen, Smoltz, Schilling, and many more. MLB authentication program hologram stickers appear on the display case and on each ball. The 2002 All-Star Game will always be remembered for all of the wrong reasons. It started out as one of the most celebrated, but ended unexpectedly as one of the most disappointing. The game itself had everything: great pitching, excellent fielding, powerful hitting, and phenomenal response from the fans. The game, however, ended with a sea of boos, as it was declared a tie (7-7) after eleven innings, when both teams ran out of pitchers. American League manager Joe Torre and National League skipper Bob Brenly had used all nineteen hurlers in an effort to get everyone in the game. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,265.00
