    Description

    1976 American & National League All-Star Team Signed Baseballs with President Ford. Furthering the patriotic theme that saw the All-Star Game played in the city where the Declaration of Independence had been signed two centuries earlier, President Ford appeared at Veterans Stadium this year to launch the game's first pitch. Offered here is a pair of ONL (Feeney) balls signed at the event by the American and National League squads respectively, each also supplying an autograph from Jerry Ford himself. The A.L. ball remains in simply spectacular condition, most notably boasting a 10/10 blue ink signature from the game's starting catcher Thurman Munson. Other stars among the balance of twenty-eight 9+/10 autographs include Fingers, Carew, Lemon, Fisk, Hunter, Brett, Yastrzemski, Lynn, Tiant and more. A thin indented line barely nicks the tail end of the Munson signature, though this is mentioned purely for accuracy's sake and does not materially affect appearance. The National League ball drops a couple of points below its partner in signature quality, though all twenty-one are very easily legible and rate an average of 7/10. Noteworthy here are Schmidt, Seaver, Perez, Sparky Anderson, Griffey, Foster, and the year's Cy Young winner Randy Jones. President Ford's sweet spot signature, it should be noted, is lightly smudged. A terrific matched pair with no shortage of All-Star appeal. LOA from PSA/DNA.
