    Description

    1956 Napoleon "Larry" Lajoie Single Signed Baseball. So popular in his day that the Cleveland club was renamed "The Naps" in his honor, Lajoie bedevils those collectors seeking his essential single, with just four appearing in our auction results database of the last dozen years. Here we present the fifth, a blue fountain pen side panel application that underscores his standard "Larry Lajoie" autograph with a date of "4-19-56." The date coincides with the second game of the Indians season, the likely occasion of the autograph session. Ball is an OAL (Harridge) model. Signature rates a conservative 8/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
