    Description

    1954 Connie Mack Single Signed Baseball with Mack Family Provenance. The exemplar on offer here was signed at the start of Connie Mack's final season as the Athletics owner and the franchise's last season in Philadelphia, before the move to Kansas City. Mr. Mack's large signature covers the sweet spot and beyond of this "Reach Official League" baseball in 6/10 fountain pen ink. The ball has toned a bit and, although Mack's autograph has faded some, it is still fully recognizable and legible.

    The consignor was related to Connie Mack through his great grandmother who was a McGillicuddy and a first cousin of Connie. The consignor's father also knew Connie well and had him sign one baseball for each of his three sons after which he added the notation "Andy 2-13-54" neatly over the "Official League" stamp on this specimen. Also included is a wonderful 5x4" image of the consignor's great uncle with Mr. Mack at Spring Training where Connie would let him suit up and participate. A great McGillicuddy-Mack family keepsake marking the sunset of Connie Mack's baseball career and the swan song of the fabulous Philadelphia Athletics. Notations made in unknown hand. Letter of provenance from Mack family member. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
