    1953 Pepper Martin Single Signed & Inscribed Baseball. The Wild Horse of the Osage signed the sweet spot of this ONL (Harridge) ball and inscribed the panel above "To Rusty," all in blue fountain pen. Directly below Martin's autograph is the red ink inscription "Presented at Buff [Buffalo] Stadium - July 14, 1953, Old Timers Night" which was added later in another hand. The ball has some toning and a light coat of shellac was applied at the time to preserve the inscriptions and autograph. The first "P" and M" in Martin's signature have jumps but the rest is 9/10. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
