    Description

    1958 Rogers Hornsby Single Signed Baseball & Album Page. "Any ballplayer that don't sign autographs for little kids ain't an American," the Hall of Fame second baseman once told a reporter for The Saturday Evening Post. "He's a communist." The mighty Rajah practiced what he preached to create the contents of this fine lot, with exceptional blue ink signatures on an ONL (Giles) baseball and an album page. The former is a clean, pale sphere with an 8.5/10 side panel autograph tagged "1958." The latter is a flawless 10/10 inscription reading "To Allan from Rogers Hornsby 1958." The page is 4x5" with very minor edge wear but no noteworthy flaws. While autographs on paper from this St. Louis hero are relatively available, high-grade singles such as the one presented here find their way to the auction block very infrequently, and as such should be considered strongly by any serious Hall of Fame baseball collector. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
