Official American League (Harridge) ball signed in a variety of inks by fifteen former members of the either the New York Yankees or Philadelphia A's, including five prominent Hall of Famers. The signatures appearing on the ball are those of Jimmie Foxx, Lefty Grove (sweet spot), Frank Baker, Lefty Gomez, Mickey Cochrane, Ben Chapman, Wally Pipp, George Selkirk, Joe Dugan, Mule Haas, Jack Barry, Bob Meusel, Bob Koenig, Bing Miller, and Max Bishop. Signatures range from "3" to "8," averaging "6/7." Although the manufacturer's stampings are too light to precisely date the ball, it can be broadly assigned to the 1943-1960 manufacturing period. As such, it might have been signed at an old-timer day event or similar function during that time span. Excellent to Mint condition. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
