    Description

    1930 Earle Mack's Barnstorming Team Signed Baseball with Lefty Grove, Harry Heilmann & Lefty O'Doul. An incredible relic from barnstorming's heyday in the 1920's and 30's, when teams comprised of Major League players would carpet the continental U.S., introducing big league stars to small town America, and travel to far off lands, promoting the American Pastime to the rest of the world. Long before the days of million dollar contracts and lucrative endorsement deals, these tours also provided a vehicle for players to supplement their earnings in the off-season.

    The beautiful Wilson "Pacific Coast League" baseball presented here, with league president Harry A. Williams' facsimile signature stamped on a side panel, contains the blue ink fountain pen autographs of eight key members of Earle Mack's 1930 barnstorming team, including Lefty Grove (sweet spot), Harry Heilmann, Lefty O'Doul, Earl Whitehill, Steve O'Neill, Rube Walberg, Red Kress, and Nick Altrock.

    The ball has toned to a light gray color but the 1924-31 PCL stamping is very prominent. Meanwhile, the signatures are all very legible and even in strength, registering at an overall 6.5/10 or 7/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
