    Description

    1957 Sam Crawford Single Signed Baseball. A devastating combination of power and speed elevated "Wahoo Sam" to the top of the career charts for triples with a total of 309, fourteen better than his closest rival and Hall of Fame teammate Ty Cobb. Much like Gehrig's experience with Ruth, Crawford often found himself in the shadow of the more famous Tiger, and his single signed baseballs are rarely seen within the hobby. He inscribed this OAL (Harridge) ball the year of his Hall of Fame induction, writing, "To Lucille & Henry Jerry, With all good wishes, Wahoo Sam Crawford, August 4 - 57."

    Crawford's blue fountain pen ink averages 8/10, and the ball presents beautifully, as minor damage to the ball's leather appears directly opposite the writing. A top-tier example of an essential hobby rarity. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
