Description

    1931 Philadelphia Athletics Team Signed Baseball. The unstoppable colossus of the American League, Connie Mack's crew rolled to an outrageous 107-45 regular season record before coming up two runs short from a Series three-peat in their Game Seven loss to the Cardinals. Essentially unchanged from the 1929 and 1930 rosters that rank near the 1927 Yankees in most baseball historians' estimation, the '31 squad still boasts such Hall of Fame talent as Cochrane, Foxx, Grove, Hoyt, Simmons, and Collins, as a coach. Each of these legendary figures appears between the red and blue stitching of this OAL (Harridge) ball, blessed with twenty black ink autographs from one of baseball's great dynasties. Even the old man himself is here, signing with an abridged "C. Mack." Ink quality ranges from a readily legible 4 to 7/10, with the majority of the keys finding themselves on the higher end of that scale. The ball itself is evenly and attractively toned, with just one small and isolated area of foxing that does not affect any notable signatures. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,200 - $1,500.
