    Description

    2000's Pope Benedict XVI Single Signed Baseball. The ex-Cardinal is now an ex-Pope as well, the first top man at the Vatican to resign the post since the Middle Ages. So if you thought it was tough to reach Benedict with horsehide in hand during his reign, you can bet that it's even tougher now that he's out of the public eye. Long story short, if your run of Papal singles is lacking this entry, this could very well be your last chance to remedy the situation. Of the tiny handful that have surfaced in the hobby since Benedict took over control of the Catholic Church upon John Paul II's passing, none has been superior to this example, boasting a 9+/10 black ink signature on the sweet spot of a Mint OAL (Budig) sphere. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
