    Description

    1921 World Series Game Three Used Baseball Signed by George Kelly. After dropping the first two games to their Polo Grounds tenants, the Giants stormed back in the third game, piling thirteen runs onto Yankee pitching, mainly in a gruesome eight-run eighth. But the worst news of the day for the Yankees was the injury to Babe Ruth suffered as he slid into a base, ending his participation in the club's first Fall Classic. This souvenir of the Giants victory was saved by its Hall of Fame first baseman George "High Pockets" Kelly, who signs the ONL sphere and notates "World's Series 1921, Ball from third game, Giants 13 Yanks 5, Polo Grounds NY." Ink averages 4/10 in strength. Though it is not labeled as such, the fact that the final out was a grounder to third baseman Frankie Frisch who threw to Kelly to retire Yankee center fielder Elmer Miller strongly suggests that this is that final out ball. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
