Description

    1960's Walter O'Malley Single Signed Baseball. Our pricing database suggests that the last sale of an O'Malley single within a major auction happened in 2003, a fact that should indicate just how rare this most hated man in Brooklyn baseball history is on horsehide. But even many of those who still curse his name for shipping the Bums to Los Angeles are forced to come crawling back now, as the Veterans Committee of the Baseball Hall of Fame enshrined the Dodgers owner posthumously in 2008. As such, this is the very first major auction offering of a single from Walter O'Malley, the Hall of Famer. His blood red 9/10 ballpoint signature is appropriately sinister on the side panel of an "L.A. City Rec. & Park" baseball that links the legendary executive to his adopted hometown. Light toning remains clear of the autograph. Will it be another decade (or more) until your next opportunity at ownership? Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
