    Description

    1957 Jimmie Foxx Single Signed Baseball. Hall of Fame pitcher Lefty Gomez once joked, "When Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon, he and all the space scientists were puzzled by an unidentifiable white object. I knew immediately what it was. That was a home run ball hit off me in 1933 by Jimmie Foxx." The first man to join the Babe in the 500 Home Run Clubhouse supplies a 6/10 sweet spot signature upon this "City League" sphere, providing the second most difficult single from the long ball gang. Included letter of provenance from original owner recounts a charming meeting with Double X in his own backyard as the legendary slugger visited his uncle. Ball is toned and lightly soiled, but our catalog imagery should properly indicate that the distraction is minor. A solid mid-grade example of a piece that appears on many collectors' want lists. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
