    Description

    Early 1950's Cy Young Double Signed Baseball. Yes, you read the title correctly, and if you are thinking that this must be the most unique signed baseball from the sport's only 500-game winner, you're probably right. As the story was related to us, a relative of our consignor lived close to Young's Ohio hometown and encountered the elderly legend one day. The starstruck fan presented a baseball to be signed, but was disappointed to find that Young's large side panel signature ended in the seams of the ball. He asked Young to try again, accounting for a second, even larger, autograph that extends from another side panel all the way through the ball's sweet spot. In another hand, on a blank side panel, someone has penned, "Won 511 Games, Pitched 3 No Hit, 1 Perfect Game." Young's blue ink remains in marvelous condition, ranging from 7/10 to 8/10 in boldness, and the occasional scuff to the lightly-toned Little League ball does not affect the writing in any noteworthy fashion. Certainly it goes without saying that this offering represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and we expect that those collectors who concentrate on quality and rarity will bid accordingly. LOA from PSA/DNA. 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.
