Hall of Fame induction weekend brings throngs of baseball fans to tiny Cooperstown in upstate NY, where the fans can mingle with the Hall of Famers, at least that is the way it was back in the 1970s when this baseball was signed. Offered is a OAL Joe Cronin near-white baseball with 11 bold ink signatures, including: Edd Roush (sweet spot), Bill Dickey, Sam Rice, Enos Slaughter, Luke Appling, Lefty Grove, Dizzy Dean ("8/9" - a beauty!), Ray Schalk, Red Ruffing, Chas. Gehringer, and Jackie Robinson ("8" - placed in his usual 'at the top of the horseshoe' location). Signatures grade ("8-10"). The ball is near-white to white with bold stampings and a few light spots which do not affect any of the signatures. Beautiful signed baseball, with signatures obtained by our consignor at the HOF induction ceremonies in the early 1970s. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
