    Description

    1956 Indianapolis Indians Team Signed Baseball with Maris. Five years before he would shock the world with a successful assault on the Babe's home run record, the twenty-one year old slugger was dominating the minors with the Cleveland Indians farm club, represented here on an official "American Association" baseball. Roger's blue ink autograph rates an impressive 8/10, which stands as the average for the other twenty-two teammates that join him. The other notable name we can find is Russ Nixon, who joined Maris as a Cleveland Indians rookie in 1957. It's quite obviously the Maris autograph that makes this ball a winner, however, and no serious collector of his ephemera could possibly ignore this opportunity. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
