But instead the Braves strode into the most torrid pace in professional baseball history, claiming victory in seventy of their final eighty-nine games to finish a full ten games ahead of the second place New York Giants in the National League pennant race. The utter domination would continue through the World Series, where the Braves swept the Philadelphia Athletics in four games, marking the unceremonious end (with some help from the rogue Federal League) to Connie Mack's first great dynasty.
Just a small handful of team signed baseballs from this remarkable chapter in baseball history have survived to see the dawn of the twenty-first century, and here we offer the finest yet encountered, consigned by the family of star pitcher George Tyler. The ONL (Tener) sphere is autographed by twenty-eight comeback kids, most boldly by Hall of Famer Rabbit Maranville, whose seventy-eight RBI's led the offense. Fellow legend Johnny Evers is here as well, along with the full starting line-up of Gowdy, Schmidt, Deal, Gilbert, Mann, Connolly, starting pitchers Rudolph, Strand, Tyler and manager George Stallings. All listed names are readily legible, with signature boldness ranging from 1.5/10 to 7/10. Any condition issues must be forgiven in light of the tremendous scarcity. A remarkable new hobby "find" makes its debut in this Platinum Night auction. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
