    1978 Legends of Sport Multi-Signed Baseball with Jesse Owens. The man who embarrassed Adolf Hitler with his gold medal performances over Aryan athletes at the 1936 Berlin Olympics earns the sweet spot of this special sphere signed at the winter Baseball meetings in 1978, which Owens happened to attend. He embellishes his 10/10 black ink signature with the inscription "36 Olympics," while fellow athletic heroes Satchel Paige, Hank Aaron, Joe DiMaggio, Lefty Gomez, Bob Lemon, Roger Maris, Ernie Banks and Ed Lopat offer equally strong autographs of their own. "Official League" brand ball remains utterly free of toning or any other sign of age, leaving this baseball looking exactly as it did when it experienced its multiple brushes with greatness. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.

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