Orlando Cepeda Single-Signed Baseballs (72)
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $1,175.00
This full case of seventy-two Orlando Cepeda single-signed baseballs is distinguished by several significant variations of his signature represented as well as by a number of specially inscribed notations. All of the balls are official National League (Coleman) balls and have been signed by Cepeda in blue ink (all grading “10”) across the sweet spot. The difference between them lies in the manner in which he has signed his name and by the notations he has added. Twelve balls are simply signed “Orlando Cepeda.” Another dozen are signed with his full name, “Manuel Orlando Cepeda.” Of the remaining forty-eight balls, one dozen each are specially inscribed, respectively, with the following four added notations, “Orlando Cepeda #30,” “Orlando Cepeda Baby Bull,” “Orlando Cepeda ROY 58,” and “Orlando Cepeda 67 MVP.” Approximately thirty percent of the balls display a few small areas of light age toning. Otherwise, all of the balls are in Near Mint or Nr/Mt-Mt condition. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 72 baseballs. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,175.00
