Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $3,876.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Official Reach American League (Barnard) baseball signed in ink on the sweet spot and side panels by 20 members of the 1928 Philadelphia Athletics team, including: Ty Cobb, Jimmie Foxx, Tris Speaker (ss), Al Simmons (ss), Mickey Cochrane, Lefty Grove, Jimmie Dykes, Joe Boley, Joe Bush, Sam Hale, George 'Mule' Haas, Ed Rommel, Jack Quinn, Joe Hauser, Carroll 'Lefty' Yerkes, William 'Kid' Gleason, Bing Miller, Rube Walberg, Ossie Orwoll, George Earnshaw. In very good condition, with soiling, toning from a light coat of shellac, and staining or scuffing affecting most of the signatures; the manufacturer's stampings are strong, including the facsimile signature of AL President E. S. Barnard on a side panel.

Led by a slew of Hall of Famers—Cobb, Foxx, Speaker, Simmons, Cochrane, and Grove would all be enshrined in Cooperstown—the 1928 Philadelphia A's finished with a 98-55 record, second only to the similarly stacked New York Yankees squad. It was the last big league season for both Cobb and Speaker, the first of Cochrane's two AL MVP campaigns, and Grove's first year as the league's winningest pitcher. The presence of the tough signature of coach Kid Gleason—famed as the manager of the scandalous 1919 'Black Sox'—is also of note.

Provenance: The Roger Peckinpaugh Family.
