Sold Price: $18,181.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Remarkably rare official Rawlings Major League (Manfred) baseball signed in blue ballpoint on the sweet spot by Pope Francis, "Francis." In very fine condition. Accompanied by a color satin-finish 12 x 8 photograph from The Vatican taken at the time of signing on September 23, 2020, a full letter of authenticity from JSA, and a letter of provenance from the current owner, stating that it was obtained from the European autograph collector pictured via a dealer in the USA. Baseballs are a highly desirable format for any autograph, and this papal treasure is unlike any we have previously seen.
