Enormous Signed Golf Ball Collection-Golfers, Athletes, Celebrities, Etc. (217)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,044.00
Although golf balls provide the writing surface for the autographs featured here, the signers have not been restricted to golfers. Included within this collection of 217 individually signed golf balls are the signatures of various professional athletes, celebrities, singers, and entertainers, including rock star Alice Cooper, hockey Hall of Famer Paul Coffey, comedy star Eugene Levy and former Yankees pitcher Ralph Terry. The signatures of 190 different individuals are featured within the collection, with twenty of the signers represented more than once. The balls (various brands) are in Excellent condition overall and have been signed in a variety of inks (primarily blue or black marker), with the signatures averaging "8/9" in grade. A complete listing of all of the signatures represented in the collection is available on our web site. Among the notable signatures included here are those of Paul Azinger, Andy Bean, Glen Beckert, John Brodie, David Cassidy, Paul Coffey, Alice Cooper, Fred Couples, Marcel Dionne, Lee Elder, Ernie Els, Randy Hundley, Don Kessinger, Eugene Levy, Billy Mayfair (3), Larry Mize (2), Byron Nelson, Craig T. Nelson, Gary Player, Henri Richard (2), Chi Chi Rodriguez, Paul Runyan (3), Scott Sanderson, David Shula (2), Vijay Singh, Annika Sorenstam (2), Craig Stadler, Jan Stephenson, Ralph Terry, Jim Thorpe (senior golf pro), John Vanbigsbrouk, and Fuzzy Zoeller (4). Because signed golf balls are so unusual, this is a very difficult lot to value. Though we have confidence that it will find an appropriate level at auction, we suspect that the selling price may not fully recognize the great investment in time and effort (and golf balls) which has obviously been devoted to its assembly. LOAs from James Spence/JSA and Steve Grad, Mike Gutierrez & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA. Total 217 signed golf balls. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $1,044.00
