    1940's Hank Greenberg Single Signed Baseball. Before there was Jackie Robinson, it was Greenberg who endured the threats and taunts of bigotry at the ballpark, answering the anti-Semites in the same way that Robinson did the segregationists--with quiet strength and Hall of Fame ability. Though Greenberg lived until 1985, his single signed baseballs are unusually scarce, particularly vintage specimens such as that which we present here, a marvelous "Big Hit" model featuring a bold side panel inscription from the celebrated slugger. His blue fountain pen ink survives with 8/10 boldness, and reads "To Harry Lifelitz with best wishes, 'Hank' Greenberg." The rather ragged original ball box is included. Certainly one of the finer Greenberg singles we've handled. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
