    1930 Chicago Cubs Signed Baseball with Hack Wilson. In a memorable five year span, from 1926-30, Hack Wilson averaged thirty-five home runs and 142 RBI while batting .331 with an on base percentage of .419 and a slugging percentage of .612. In his mythical season of 1930 (from which this baseball dates), Wilson recorded a .356 batting average and .723 slugging average with 146 runs, fifty-six homers, and a record 191 RBI.

    The Spalding "Junior Professional" sphere seen here was signed by in Spring Training for that historic campaign and includes Hall of Famers Hack Wilson, Rogers Hornsby, and Gabby Hartnett. Others include Sheriff Blake, Les Bell, Charlie Root, and Johnny Schulte. While the ball has browned over the years, the stamping is still bold and the black ink autographs vary in strength with Hack and Rogers grading a 6.5/10. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
