1950's Branch Rickey Signed Baseball. The look of a $4,000 single without the price tag to match! The Hall of Famer best remembered for his brave decision to integrate our National Pastime occupies the sweet spot of this OAL (Harridge) ball, well clear of the other autographs that share its lightly toned hide. The result should be clear from our catalog photography. There are some nice names on the far panels however, with Gil Hodges and Early Wynn representing half of the signers. An apparent removal on the northern panel must be noted as well. Still a beautiful ball with an unbeatable 10/10 Rickey. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
