    1930 Cuba Barnstorming Champion Team Signed Baseball. American ballplayers have been barnstorming Cuba for a century, ever since Frank Bancroft first led his 'Hop Bitters' down south in 1880. Since then, stars such as Christy Mathewson, Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford, Satchel Paige, Buck Leonard, Cool Papa Bell, and Wild Bill Wright, all made the island trek.

    The ONL (Heydler) baseball on offer here is inscribed "Em's Stars of Cuba 1930 Champions" on the sweet spot in an unknown hand and signed by ten, including Hall of Famers Paul Waner, Rabbit Maranville, Pie Traynor and Al Lopez, plus Don Hurst, Jim Chaplin, Pinky Whitney, Larry French and two others. It appears that a couple of other autographs have since faded from view. Ball has some fading and discoloration, while the signatures average 5/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
