    Description

    1947 Cy Young Single Signed Baseball--An Elite Example.
    The man whose name is synonymous with pitching excellence ranks right up there with Ruth and Cobb in terms of hobby essentials, but his singles are tougher to find than either of his inaugural Hall of Fame classmates'. Presented is one of the finest specimens of that rare breed, a whistle-clean OAL (Harridge) sphere bearing a marvelously bold side panel signature from the career victories king. The key to the ball's extraordinary state of preservation is decades of solitude within its original Reach packaging, which is included. A truly elite representation for the uncompromising collector, acquired by our consignor from Young personally in 1947, with his letter of provenance. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Letter of provenance from consignor.
