    Description

    1944 Bill McGowan Signed Baseball. Once signed by six members of the 1944 World Series umpiring staff, this ONL (Frick) ball has been magically transformed through chemical treatment to take on the appearance of a phenomenally scarce McGowan single, allowing one smart collector to fill a very tough gap in his autograph collection. McGowan's service to our National Pastime in an officiating capacity, paired with his early passing almost forty years prior to his Hall of Fame induction, has made his autograph a rare commodity, particularly on baseballs. This 8/10 black ink offering, applied upon an unobtrusive swirl of apparent game use, is as close as you're likely to come to a genuine single, which would certainly cost a small fortune if it did arise. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
