Multi-Signed Hall of Fame Baseball Including Mantle & DiMaggio - Stan Bahnsen Provenance
Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $587.50
This multi-signed ball, featuring the signatures of nineteen Hall of Fame players, has been consigned directly by former New York Yankees pitcher Stan Bahnsen, who obtained all of the signatures personally over the course of many years. The official American League (Brown) ball has been signed in varying shades of blue and black ink by Mickey Mantle (sweet spot), Joe DiMaggio, Jim Palmer, Catfish Hunter, Robin Roberts, Hoyt Wilhelm, Fergie Jenkins, Lou Brock, Sandy Koufax, Stan Musial, Whitey Ford, Johnny Mize, Earl Weaver, Bob Feller, Enos Slaughter, Brooks Robinson (twice), Monte Irvin, Billy Williams, and one other (not a ballplayer). The signatures range in grade from “6” to “10,” averaging “8.” The ball is accompanied by a signed LOA from Bahnsen that reads in full: This American League baseball is approximately 30 years old. Over that time period I had it autographed in person by each player at different activities such as Old-Timers Games, charity fundraising dinners, charity golf tournaments, Baseball theme cruises in the Caribbean, etc. Several of these Hall-of-Famers are no longer living but memories of their great careers will be with us forever and looking at their autographs reminds me of each one individually. This is an outstanding Hall of Fame multi-signed ball with a rare and ideal documented provenance. The ball is in Near Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $587.50
