    1956 Jimmie Foxx Single Signed Baseball. Consistently a stumbling block for those attempting to assemble a complete set of 500 Home Run Club singles is "The Beast," who adds a congratulatory inscription to this baseball slugged for a grand slam by a member of the University of Miami team that Foxx managed. "Nice Going John, Jimmie Foxx" spans an entire panel of this NCAA baseball in 8/10 blue ink, as a vintage black ink inscription in another hand notes on the opposing sweet spot, "Home Run Ball with Bases Loaded, March 27, 1956." The score of "Amherst 9, Miami 6" is below. This baseball, certainly once a young ballplayer's most prized possession, can now be one of yours as well. As the anemic supply of Foxx singles continue to find their way into permanent collections, we can expect the asking price to increase dramatically in the coming years. LOA from PSA/DNA.

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