    Description

    1931-2000 Signed 3,000 Hit Club Members Baseballs Lot of 21. What an impressive collection to obtain with just one bid! A total of twenty-two baseballs come in this lot, all signed by members of baseball's 3,000 Hit Club. Two balls are team signed, while the remainder are all beautiful single signed specimens. Starting with the team balls, a 1931 Pittsburgh Pirates ONL (Heydler) leads the way with a Paul Waner signature rating a 7/10. In addition, the ball features HOF autographs of brother Lloyd Waner and Pie Traynor. The second team ball is a 1962 Pittsburgh Pirates featuring Roberto Clemente. The Clemente signature is extremely light, ranking at a 2/10, but is visible.

    The remaining baseballs are all single signed examples, with most on clean, white official balls free of any major problems. Signatures range from 8-10/10 with the exception of Derek Jeter (4/10 and moderate toning). Names include Dave Winfield, Cal Ripken Jr., Craig Biggio, Rickey Henderson, Paul Molitor, Rod Carew, Eddie Murray, Carl Yastrzemski, Wade Boggs (light toning), Stan Musial, Hank Aaron (light toning), Lou Brock, Rafael Palmeiro, Pete Rose, Tony Gwynn, Robin Yount, George Brett (moderate toning) and Al Kaline.

    It would take years and many thousands of dollars to put this set together from scratch. Some lucky collector has the opportunity now to buy the entire collection and simply add to it. All baseballs except Jeter (Steiner hologram) come with COA's from JSA or PSA/DNA. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
