    Description

    1946-47 Tris Speaker Single Signed Baseball, PSA/DNA NM-MT+ 8.5. It was a legendary career that almost never happened, as Speaker's left arm was so badly damaged in a college football injury that doctors initially suggested amputation. But Speaker recovered to become one of the greatest hitters the game has ever known, maintaining to this day the career record for doubles, and top ten positions in average, hits and triples.

    Much like the man who signed it, the offered baseball finds few rivals, and stands as the highest-graded Speaker single ever offered at auction. The blue ink of the sweet spot signature maintains a boldness of 8/10, and the OAL (Harridge) sphere that serves as its home is likewise gloriously well-preserved, with sharp, bold stamping that allows us to narrow production range to the two-year span of our lot title. It too earns an 8/10 assessment, with PSA/DNA adding a half-point to the final grade for aesthetic strength. A top-tier representation for the uncompromising collector. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, NM-MT+ 8.5. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
