    Late 1930's Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, Mordecai Brown Signed Baseball. It's rare to track down any of these three Hall of Fame Chicago Cubs on horsehide, but the appearance of all three on a single sphere is pure magic for the Windy City collector. The specific style of OAL (Harridge) ball upon which the signatures are located allows us to narrow the possible year of creation to the 1934-39 period. One wonders if perhaps the American League pedigree of the ball could suggest the event was the 1938 Cubs vs. Yankees World Series, where Tinker (7/10) and Johnny Evers (2/10) were tearfully reunited after a 1905 fistfight began a three decade feud. Three Finger Brown (4/10) is the toughest of the trio, with a single selling for over $65,000 in our August Signature Auction. As the sorrows of the north side of Chicago extend yet another year past the century mark, pieces recalling those long ago glory days become all the more poignant. Full 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.
