    Description

    1963 President Dwight D. Eisenhower Single Signed Baseball. He was one of the most influential figures in twentieth century American history, riding the groundswell of public support earned from his position as Supreme Commander of the D-Day invasion force to two terms in the Oval Office. While his autograph is coveted by millions who still like Ike, the appearance of his signature on a baseball sets this offering high above the rest. It was acquired directly from early 1960's Washington Senators pitcher Dave Stenhouse, whose signed letter of provenance is included. He states, "Near the end of the baseball season in 1963, President Eisenhower came into the Washington Senator locker to say hello and meet some of the players. At that time, there were twelve players present. He signed a baseball for each one of the players, including myself." Forty-two years later the OAL (Cronin) ball still presents exceedingly well, with the side panel "Dwight D. Eisenhower" signature rating a steady 8/10 to 9/10 in quality. The ball shows light and even toning. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
