    Description

    1954 Max Carey Single Signed Baseball. The greatest base thief of his day, the Hall of Fame center fielder led the National League in steals half of his twenty seasons in the Majors. Despite his considerable fame and long life, Carey remains frustratingly rare on single signed baseballs, with fewer than ten surfacing within major auctions in the past dozen years. Here's a marvelous representation, providing "Best always, Max Carey" in 10/10 blue ink, an unknown hand dating the inscription to 1954 just above. Ball is non-official, and remains clean and evenly toned. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
