    Description

    1959 Ford Frick Single Signed Baseball. Best remembered today for his ruling that Roger Maris' home run record should be recorded with an asterisk, Frick could occasionally be just as fervent in his defense of change, threatening the suspension of any players protesting Jackie Robinson's breaking of baseball's color line. Here we find the Hall of Famer and former president of the National League on the side panel of a baseball issued at a 1959 meeting between Amherst and Williams. His blue ink offering projects at a strength of 8/10. The ball exhibits some scattered spotting, but this remains well clear of the signature. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
