    Description

    1930's Grover Cleveland Alexander Single Signed Baseball. He's the saddest figure of the Hall of Fame's inaugural class, a brilliant athlete who succumbed to his personal demons after leaving the limelight, and ultimately to an ignominious death in a Nebraska boarding house in 1950. An unfinished letter to his ex-wife was found in his typewriter when a friend discovered his body. Alexander's absence from the public eye following his retirement from the game has made his the most difficult autograph of the 1939 inductees, and here we present an attractive two-tone stitched "Official League Ball," effectively providing the appearance of the official National League spheres of the Dead Ball Era that Alexander dominated. His side panel offering presents with impressive 8/10 tenacity on the game used horsehide. One of the finer examples we've handled. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
