    Description

    1955 American League All-Star Team Signed Baseball. If you collect All-Star team signed baseballs you will certainly appreciate this one because it contains every single American League player and coach who appeared in the 1955 All-Star Game.

    OAL (Harridge) baseball displays twenty-nine blue ballpoint signatures, including nine Hall of Famers, with Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams and Al Lopez (manager) sharing the sweet spot, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Larry Doby, Nellie Fox, Early Wynn, Al Kaline, Herb Score, Jackie Jensen, Al Rosen, Vic Power, Mickey Vernon, Harvey Kuenn, Bob Turley, Al Smith, Chico Carrasquel, Dick Donovan, Billy Pierce, Billy Hoeft (traced), Bobby Avila, Jim Wilson, Jim Finnegan, Frank Sullivan, Sherm Lollar, Tony Cuccinello (coach), Don Gutteridge (coach), and Jim Lobe (coach).

    The ball exhibits some toning and discoloration over the league stamp. A very fine coat of shellac was applied to the ball to preserve the autographs which grade an overall 9/10 in strength. Vintage "1955 All-Star" inscription at the top of one panel is a nice added touch. The signatures are well balanced and even in strength and display very nicely. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
