    Description

    1930's Mel Ott Single Signed Baseball. The third member of the 500 Home Run Club, Mel Ott joined Jimmie Foxx and Babe Ruth with his 511 career dingers. Leading the league in round trippers six times, he was an extremely consistent hitter throughout his career, with an average of .304 and not too far off from 3,000 hits. Single signed baseballs from Ott are extremely rare in any condition. This offered ball shows obvious use, and based on the notation on a side panel it could very well have been game used. Much of the inscription is obliterated, but it likely refers to a Giants game on August 4th in Cincinnati, Ohio. The manufacturer of the ball is also lost to time, but the Mel Ott signature on a side panel remains very clear. Grading a 4/10, the entire signature can be made out. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
