500 Home Run Club and 3,000 Hit Club Single Signed Ball Collection (33) - With Mantle, Williams, Aaron, and Mays
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $3,231.25
Collection of thirty-two single-signed balls consists of balls signed by seventeen members of baseball's legendary 500 Home Run Club and fifteen members of baseball's 3,000 Hit Club. This lot represents a very substantial single-signed baseball collection of both of these extremely popular collecting areas. As most fans know, the accomplishments of Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Eddie Murray merit inclusion in both clubs. Aaron and Murray are represented twice in this collection. Mays is represented only once. Unless otherwise noted, all of the balls are official Major League balls in Near Mint condition or better and all have been signed across the sweet spot in blue ink ("9/10"). Four of the signed balls have been graded by PSA DNA and are housed in the company's special ball cubes (seals unbroken).
