    Description

    Circa 1960 President Dwight D. Eisenhower Single Signed Baseball. He was one of the most influential figures in twentieth century American history, riding the groundswell of public support earned from his position as Supreme Commander of the D-Day invasion force to two terms in the Oval Office. While his autograph is coveted by millions who still like Ike, the appearance of his signature on a baseball sets this offering high above the rest. He's certainly among the most challenging targets for collectors of post-war presidential singles.

    And this one is a particularly gorgeous example thereof, Eisenhower's blue ink registering at a bold 8/10 on the side panel of a creamy vanilla OAL (Cronin) baseball. Joe Cronin took the reins of the American League in 1959, so there's good reason to suspect that this ball derives from the Opening Day ceremonies of 1959 or 1960 when Ike threw out the first pitch for the Senators at Griffith Stadium. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
