    1951 Connie Mack, Kid Nichols & Fred Clarke Signed Baseball. Special "Rawlings" baseball is housed in a "Golden Jubilee" velveteen box, suggesting the genesis is a celebration for the fiftieth anniversary of the American League in 1951. The newly retired Connie Mack takes sweet spot honors in booming 9+/10 blue ink, balanced by an equally strong Fred Clarke to the north and a bold but slightly bled offering from "Charles 'Kid' Nichols to the south. Nichols and Clarke are particularly rare on horsehide, with each having commanded five-figure sums for the rare appearance of a genuine single. Their pairing with the legendary Athletics skipper is particularly fortuitous. The ball itself is in virtually pristine condition, wrapped in its original golden foil in the aforementioned special box. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
