    1948 Lincoln Athletics Team Signed Baseball with Early Nellie Fox Signature. Despite playing a handful of games with the Philadelphia A's in 1947 and '48, Nellie Fox needed just a little more seasoning before he was ready for prime time. This ONL (Frick) Western League baseball is the earliest Fox penning we have encountered. The offered ball was penned in 1948 when Fox played for the Lincoln A's. Fox's signature rates 8/10, as do most of the others. Some are lesser. Included are: Bower, Partee, Aliperto, Busco, Lebedz, Vojcsik, Bernardi, Shantz, Boehm and more. A separate side panel was signed in blue ink and has reduced signatures from: Wellman, Palash and a few more. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
