    1931 Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs Teams Signed Baseball from Opening Day with Paul & Lloyd Waner. ONL (Barnard) baseball is Inscribed with the date (4/14/31) and score (Chgo 6, Pgh 2) of the game. The ball was originally signed by about twenty Pirates and Cubs from that day but, sadly, most of the signatures have faded. Fortunately, two of the most desirable are still there: Paul Waner (6.5/10) and Lloyd Waner (7.5/10), aka Big Poison and Little Poison. Also, Guy Bush of the Cubs. The ball was shellacked and has browned over the years. The ball once hung in an office as part of a display with other baseballs and is still fitted with the metal staple and string which was originally affixed to secure it to the display. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
