    Description

    1950's Ray Schalk Single Signed Baseball. When Eddie Cicotte and Lefty Williams failed to throw the pitches he called for in the 1919 World Series, Schalk was convinced that something more than poor control was at the heart of the matter. The Chicago catcher, believed by many to be the greatest defensive backstop of his day, remained honest through those dark Black Sox days, paving his way to an eventual Hall of Fame plaque in the process. Here we find a rare OAL (Harridge) ball from the 1955 inductee with a "Merry Xmas" salutation. "To John" is notated in an unknown hand on the sweet spot. The ball has even toning, and the autograph rates 8/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
