    Description

    1958 Tris Speaker Single Signed Baseball. Dating from the final year of his life, this OAL (Harridge) ball represents a single that most of the Hall of Fame collecting population is conspicuously lacking. The Grey Eagle still features strongly in any conversation about the greatest outfielders of all time, and his numbers bear this out. Four times he came within twenty points of the magical .400 batting average mark, topping 200 hits in each of those years. His fielding skills are equally legendary. His World Series record is a perfect three and zero, winning twice in Boston and once as a member of the Tribe in Cleveland. Happily, he also owns one of the most attractive autographs in the hobby, which is beautifully represented on this OAL (Harridge) ball inscribed "From Tris Speaker To: Tommy." The ink remains quite bold after close to fifty years since its application, rating a strong 7/10 to 8/10. The ball is equally fine, toned an even and creamy shade, with "1958" penned discreetly on the "Reach" logo, invisible upon display. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.

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