    1949-51 Roy Campanella Single Signed Baseball. Were it not for the horrific accident that left him paralyzed in 1957, Roy Campanella might be the undisputed king of backstops in Major League Baseball. For almost ten years, he helped lead the Brooklyn Dodgers to victory after victory, raking in three MVP awards and eight All-Star appearances in the process. He likely would have hit 500 home runs and approached 2,000 RBI. Still his statistics reveal a man who knew how to play ball with the best of them, and beyond the stats, his bravery following the accident riveted fans for years.

    This single signed ONL (Frick) baseball which dates it between 1949 to his 1951 MVP season, exhibits spectacular condition, despite a layer shellacking that is evenly distributed on the leather. Regardless, the side panel signature boasts a pleasing 8/10 grade with the inscription reading, "To my Pal Tommy Macrery, Best Wishes, Roy Campanella." Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
