    Description

    1970's Truman Capote Single Signed Baseball. He gained international fame as the author of the novella "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and the true crime novel "In Cold Blood," but his troubles with drugs and alcohols precipitated his early demise at age sixty in 1984. We've never encountered his autograph on a baseball, and it's entirely likely that none other exists. Capote's blue ink autograph adorns the western panel of the provided ONL (Feeney) sphere, which is moderately toned but still presents very well. The autograph grades a solid 9/10. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.

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