    Description

    Earl Averill Jr. Single Signed Baseball With Lengthy Inscription. Although he shares a name with his Hall of Fame father he did not inherit his father's Hall of Fame numbers. Jr. did enjoy an 8 year career playing with five teams. He has signed this ball twice and added a lengthy inscription "Earl Douglas Averill U of Oregon 1958 MVP PCL Padres Cubs, Sox, Indians, Angles and Phillies. He also adds some advice his famous father gave him "Dad's Advice hit the ball at the pitcher". Earl senior knew how to do that famously breaking Dizzy Dean's toe in the 1937 All Star game with a line drive back to the pitcher. Effectively shortening Dean's brilliant career. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
