500 HR Club Signed Bat and Baseball (2)
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $2,350.00
Both of these signed pieces originate from one of the early 500 Home Run Club signing shows held in the 1980s. At that time there were eleven living members of that exclusive baseball fraternity: Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Harmon Killebrew, Mike Schmidt, Frank Robinson, Reggie Jackson, Ernie Banks, Willie McCovey, and Eddie Mathews. The fact that all were able to attend in person for the signing was especially historic. Each of the eleven players has signed the bat in blue Sharpie and the ball in blue ink. The bat, a thirty-four inch Rawlings blue-ring model P302, includes an affixed plaque on the barrel featuring the engraved names of the club members. It is numbered "190/300" on the knob. The ball is an official American League (Brown) ball and features the signatures of Ted Williams and Mickey Mantle on the sweet spot. All of the signatures grade "10" and both pieces are in Near Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 2 items (bat and ball). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,350.00
