    Description

    1934 Charles Pfirman Signed All-Star Game Used Baseball. Only the most comprehensively educated of baseball historians will recognize the name, but National League umpire Charles Pfirman did have one bright moment in the sun which is recalled with the offered baseball. It was Pfirman who was behind the plate as Carl Hubbell struck out Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons and Joe Cronin in succession at New York's The Polo Grounds in one of the most impressive feats of pitching in the prewar era. Here we present an ONL (Heydler) ball used in that second All-Star Game, autographed and notated on the side panel, "Chas. Pfirman, Nat'l League Umpire, All Star Game 1934." All ink is 10/10, and the ball is toned and lightly scuffed in places, but presents very well. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $800 - $1,200.

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