    Description

    1957 American League All-Star Team Signed Baseball.
    One of the more controversial Midsummer Classics, this Cincinnati affair was complicated by the locals' stuffing of the ballot box, electing nearly the entire Reds team to the National League's starting roster. League president Ford Frick was forced to step in to minimize the effects, stating, "I can take it if we lose, but I strongly object to our league making a burlesque out of the All-Star Game."

    But while the Senior Circuit may have fielded a watered-down team, the same could not be said for the eventual winners. This OAL (Harridge) ball features the full roster of twenty-three signers, with Ted Williams and Casey Stengel sharing sweet spot duties, and Mantle, Bunning, Berra, Kell, Kaline, Fox, Wynn, Siever (clubhouse) and more nearby. Most signatures are 8/10 or better, but one panel (with Kell and Kaline) is lighter, averaging 4/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
