Enormous collection of 302 different single-signed baseballs, plus two dual-signed balls (duly noted in our listing). Although none of the players represented here are Hall of Famers, most of the names should be familiar to even the most casual fans. A few of the balls include additional notations by the player relating to his career totals or some special accomplishment. With very few exceptions, all the balls are official National or American League balls and have been signed on the sweet spot. Signatures range in grade from "5" to "10," averaging "8/9," with the exception of Chuck Connors ("3/4"). Nearly all the balls display varying degrees of age toning and are otherwise in Near Mint condition overall. This is one of, if not the largest single-signed baseball collection we have offered. We have highlighted a few of the better-known players.
