    Description

    Circa 1950 Charles "Chief" Bender Single Signed Baseball. A graduate of the same Carlisle Indian Industrial School which graduated Jim Thorpe, Bender became one of the top pitching stars of the Dead Ball Era, with Ty Cobb himself calling him "the most intelligent pitcher I've ever faced." Here we present a tremendously scarce example of his single, his black fountain pen signature applied to the side panel of an OAL (Harridge) sphere with 6/10 boldness. It's just the third Bender single we've had the privilege to offer, and certainly the finest of the trio. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
