    Rube Walberg 35th Career Win Game Used With Inscription Signed Ball. In a 15-season career spanning from 1923-1937, George "Rube" Walberg won 155 games, including 15 shutouts and 140 complete games. The ball we offer comes directly from the hurlers daughter with a full letter of authenticity with photos of the offered ball. The ball comes from a August 3rd, 1927 game between the A's and the Indians, in which the A's were victors by the score of 7 to 4. Following the game Walberg noted the score along with both batteries involved in the game(His catcher was HOF Mickey Cochrane).The defeated battery are listed as "Hudlin, and L. Sewell". Walberg did not sign the ball, but the lengthy inscription with his last name written and letter of provenance make for a unique and rare collectible.
