Description

    1946-47 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. Here he personalizes and autographs the side panel of an OAL (Harridge) ball in black fountain pen ink, a medium which has survived the passing decades with impressive 9+/10 boldness. The markings on this baseball date production to 1946-47, the final two seasons of Greenberg's remarkable career, and it must be stressed that "playing days" singles are all but unheard of from this celebrated slugger. The ball derives from the family of original recipient Dickie Duman, proprietor of well-known men's clothing stores in the Denver, Colorado area for over thirty years. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
