    Frank Baker Single Signed Baseball The great "Home Run" Baker is a notoriously tough single, with his playing days happening well before the kids really began chasing down autographs at the ballpark, and his death in 1963 predating the modern collecting craze by a considerable margin. We wish we knew the story behind the acquisition of this rarity, a very strong (8+/10) blue ink signature that has managed to find a safe home on a non-official ball with some staining and surface loss that doesn't dare encroach on the signature of the hard slugging Hall of Famer. All we know for sure is that there aren't too many of these out there, and your Hall of Fame singles collection has an empty space where this ball should be. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
