Roger Maris Signed Baseball

This lot has closed

Estimate: $300+

Description

Roger Maris penned his inscription and signature on the side panel of the OAL Cronin baseball reading “To Bernie Good Luck Roger Maris.” On the next side panel Bernie also had New York Yankees pitcher Roland Sheldon sign and inscribe “To Bernie Best Wishes Roland Sheldon.” Despite the addition of Sheldon, the Maris signature can display as a single. Each signature is a “6-7” on the 1-10 scale, with the Maris inscription part having two small dark marks. While Maris and Sheldon were with the Yankees from 1961 through 1964, this ball is likely from the 1961-62 periods as both players were in their New York Yankee primes. In excellent overall condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from James Spence Authentication (JSA). Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
