This official American League (Harridge) ball, which most likely dates from the late 1950s, has been signed in blue ink by thirty notable players including twelve Hall of Famers. The signatures featured on the ball are those of Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Casey Stengel, Harmon Killebrew, Luis Aparicio (on ball label), Jim Bunning, Yogi Berra, Hoyt Wilhelm, Whitey Ford, Al Kaline (sweet spot), Early Wynn, Nellie Fox, Ray Berres, Tony Cuccinello, Harry Craft, Ryne Duren, Bud Daley, Minnie Minoso (sweet spot), Roy Sievers, Pete Runnels, Frank Malzone, Rocky Colavito, Mike Garcia, Gus Triandos, Billy Pierce, Harvey Kuenn (on ball label), Chuck Stobbs, Gil McDougald, Vic Power, and one other (illegible). All of the signatures grade "9" or "10" and the ball is in Near Mint condition. While we will never know exactly what event this ball originates from, its quite possible that Sy Berger obtained it during a Topps-related banquet or function. A 1950s-era signed baseball extraordinary both in regard to the quality of the signatures and its condition. From the Sy Berger Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,293
