Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $4,339.20 (includes buyer's premium)


Official Spalding National League baseball signed in ink on the sweet spot and side panels by 26 members of the 1913 Chicago Cubs team, including: John Evers, Roger Bresnahan, Charles W. Murphy (ss), Vic Saier, Al Bridwell, Heinie Zimmerman, Frank Schulte, Mike Mitchell, Jimmy Lavender, Ed Reulbach, Ward Miller, Wilbur Good, Otis Clymer, and others. In very good to fine condition, with a light uniform coating of shellac and a few scattered spots of surface loss; the Evers signature is a shade light, and Bresnahan's signature is affected by a few abrasions.

This baseball not only features Hall of Famers Evers and Bresnahan in an extremely scarce, early format, but also boasts the incredibly rare owner of the team, sportswriter Charles W. Murphy. Murphy owned the Cubs from 1906 through 1913, overseeing their two famous World Series championships in 1907 and 1908. Team-signed baseballs from this early 'deadball' period are of the utmost scarcity, and this particular example has been exceptionally well preserved. A true gem for any Chicago Cubs fan.
