    Description

    "Jungle" Jim Rivera Single Signed Baseball With Lengthy Inscription. "Jungle Jim" got his nickname due largely to his unorthodox playing style, and for his highly extroverted personality. In 1953, he led the American League in triples (16) and in 1955, with 25 stolen bases . He was a sparkplug for the 1950s Go-Go White Sox team which eventually won the American League pennant in 1959 . A smart and fast runner, Rivera ran the bases with abandon, sliding into bases on his belly before it was fashionable, and made many a game-saving catch playing right field. On this OML (Selig) ball he has signed and added a lengthy inscription reading, Jungle Jim Rivera Chicago White Sox, St. Louis Browns, K.C. Athletics, To be in the 1959 World Series (When asked what his biggest thrill was). Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
