    1938 Philadelphia Athletics Team Signed Baseball. By 1938, Connie Mack's winning days were fading further and further into the past. And although he had already authored two of the sport's greatest dynasties, in 1910-14 and again in 1929-31, The Tall Tactician and his Athletics would never again sip from a championship chalice.

    ONL (Harridge) baseball features Connie Mack (jumpy but bold and very legible) and Eddie Smith sharing the celebrated sweet spot, with twenty other A's in attendance, including Nelson, Sperry, Hayes, Potter, Haas, Caster, Johnson, Lodigiani, D. Smith, Berry, Chapman, Etten, Gumpert, Hanson, Siebert, Newsome, Wagner, Ambler, Hayes, and Moses. The ball exhibits some ageing and a light coat of protective shellac. The signatures are light but Mack and Smith on the sweet spot are the strongest of all and display well. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
