    1920's Leo "Gabby" Hartnett Single Signed Baseball. UPDATE: This lot comes with a full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    Gabby Hartnett is generally considered the greatest National League catcher prior to Johnny Bench and Roy Campanella. A .297 career hitter, he was named the National League MVP in 1935 and led the Cubs to four pennants during his 20 year career. He will best be remembered, however, for his dramatic 1938 late season "Homer in the Gloamin'" which defeated the Pirates and helped clinch the pennant for the Cubs. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1955. Hartnett passed away in 1972 and is a particularly difficult single signature baseball to obtain. This ONL (Heydler) ball is signed by the elusive autograph conquest. The ball shows obvious signs of use/wear but Harnett signed a full name "Leo "Gabby" Hartnett" signature in 7/10 ink. Our guess is the ball saw game use. A quality single from the Cubs' iconic figure. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
