Description

    1954 Boston Red Sox Team Signed Baseball with Agganis. Though the great Ted Williams was undeniably the star of the Red Sox in this and every season of the 1950's, the rare jewel of an opposing sweet spot signature from the tragic Harry Agganis is the thing that should bring collectors running. Agganis was one of Boston University's greatest football stars, but passed up a professional gridiron contract for minor league baseball, making his way to the Major League roster the year he signed this ball. He would die of a massive pulmonary embolism before the 1955 All-Star break. He remains one of Boston's favorite sporting sons, with Boston University's Agganis Arena dedicated to his memory. For obvious reasons, Agganis' signature is quite tough, and here we find a fine 8/10 example over the Harridge stamping of this OAL ball. Among the twenty-six teammates joining him here are Ted Williams and Lou Boudreau sharing the sweet spot, Piersall, Lepcio, Jensen, Owen and more. All but a few signatures (which dip just a point or two below) compare in quality to that of Mr. Agganis. LOA from PSA/DNA.
