    8 Men Out Entire Cast Signed Ball With Character Names. Only Known cast Signed Ball !! We are thrilled to offer the only known entire cast signed ball from the classic baseball film 8 Men Out. Our consignor's father was a former Major League player who was hired to Coach the actors to create more realistic baseball scenes. The consignor and his father were also extra's in the film, heckling Buck Weaver(Cusack) from the stands. The Rawlings baseball has been signed by 12 cast members who also added their characters name. Signatures include Charlie Sheen "Hap", John Cusack "Buck" , Gordon Clapp "Ray", Jace Alexander "Dickie", John Sayles (Director), Perry Lang " Fred", Michael Rooker "Chick", James Read "Lefty", David Strathairn "Ed Cicotte", D. B. Sweeney "Shoeless", Don Harvey "The Swede", Bill Irwin "College Boy". The conspiracy was the brainchild of White Sox first baseman "Chick" Gandil , who had longstanding ties to petty underworld figures. He persuaded Joseph "Sport" Sullivan , a friend and professional gambler, that the fix could be pulled off. New York gangster Arnold Rothstein supplied the money through his lieutenant Abe Attell , a former featherweight boxing champion. Pre Certified By PSA/DNA. Includes a statement of Provenance from the Consignor
