Description:
1940's Mel Ott Single Signed Baseball. Of all the milestones of immortality that dot the baseball landscape, none quickens our pulse quite the way the 500 home run mark does. Pitching may win ballgames, but the long ball wins hearts, and there isn't a little leaguer alive who hasn't dreamed of knocking one out of a big league park in the clutch. Fortunately for collectors, most of the Club is quite readily available on singles. Mantle, Mathews and Williams are gone, but they left a good supply behind. Ruth is likewise quite easy to locate, though pricier. Jimmie Foxx is very tough, yes, but the prize for toughest of them all goes to the man who made the right field bleachers of the Polo Grounds his personal landing pad for twenty-two seasons, the immortal Mel Ott. His 7/10 side panel signature is gloriously unpersonalized, adding further rarity and desirability to a piece fully infused by both. The medium is an ONL (Frick) sphere, the very kind which earned Ott membership in The Club and a Hall of Fame plaque. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
