Description

    1968 Detroit Tigers Team Signed Baseball, PSA/DNA NM-MT+ 8.5. St. Louis Cardinals center fielder Curt Flood's misjudgment of a seventh inning Jim Northrup blast would break a scoreless stalemate in the seventh game of the 1968 World Series and ultimately secure the Motor City's first World Championship in twenty-three seasons. The presented OAL (Cronin) sphere is the finest team ball from this memorable squad we've ever encountered, garnering ratings of 9/10 and 8/10 for the signatures and baseball respectively to account for the listed grade. Thirty-one signatures are here in total, including Kaline, McLain, Smith, Northrup, Lolich, Stanley, Cash, Horton, McAuliffe and more. If condition is a key concern, this is the ball for you. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, NM-MT+ 8.5. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
