Description:
Late 1960's Roger Maris Single Signed Baseball, PSA Mint 9. It's the finest Maris single on earth, and that's not just our opinion. Check the PSA/DNA database and you'll find a population of one for Mint 9 singles from the first Babe buster. This is it. The ball takes no shortcuts en route to the Championship either, as this is actually a playing-days model, applied to the ONL (Giles) model baseball that bade farewell to Rajah with the 1968 St. Louis Cardinals, and not a post-career model. Remarkably, the ball remains as white as a supermodel's smile, and the blue ballpoint side panel inscription, "Best Always, Roger Maris," is likewise beyond reproach. We see time and time again that the top-condition rarities serve as the best investments, and we don't see this Maris ball giving up its crown any time soon. Full grading LOA from PSA/DNA, Mint 9. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
