    Description

    1956 Pittsburgh Pirates Team Signed Baseball. Clemente came into his own during his sophomore campaign and hit .311. The fact that Murtaugh appears in his own hand and not in clubhouse format is something to shout about. The ball was most likely signed during the first half of the season due to the absence of Mazeroski.

    This ONL (Giles) sphere is signed by two dozen Bucs, including the great Roberto Clemente, coach Danny Murtaugh, Dick Groat, Frank Thomas, Bob Friend, manager Bobby Bragan (sweet spot), Bill Virdon, Vern Law, Luis Arroyo, Eddie O'Brien, Johnny O'Brien, Red Munger, Red Swanson, Hank Foiles, Jack Shepard, Gene Freese, Dick Cole, Nellie King, Ron Kline, Jack McMahan, Lee Walls, Bob Skinner, Dick Hall, and Danny Kravitz.

    The ball is in great condition, lightly toned, and the league stamping is beautiful. The blue ballpoint autographs grade an overall 8/10 in strength. A beautiful specimen. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
