    1950 Philadelphia Phillies Team Signed Baseball - The Whiz Kids Sourced From Player. Losing had become a culture for the Philadelphia Phillies as the team was accustomed to looking up at its National League counterparts since 1915's World Series appearance. A brash bunch of youngsters, affectionately known as the Whiz Kids, changed the fortunes of the franchise for at least one year in 1951. The stars aligned and the Phillies avoided a late-season collapse and copped the National League pennant. While the team's magic ran out in the World Series, it did give a generation of Phillies fans a taste of winning. This ONL (Frick) baseball is signed by twenty-three members of that squad in ballpoint ink. Our consignor received this very baseball from Blix Donnelly. A top coating is applied to the slightly toned orb to keep the autographs preserved for eternity. Most of the signatures range 8/10 with a few lesser. Autographs include: Seminick, Roberts, Mayo, Caballero, Sawyer, Heintzelman, Ashburn, Waitkus, Nicholson, Bengough (coach), Hollmig, Whitman, Ennis, Sisler, Konstantly, Jones, Donnelly, Candini, Goliat, Bloodworth, Simmons and two more. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
