    Description

    1959 Chicago White Sox Team Signed Baseball. Was there ever a team more loved by a city than the 1959 Go-Go Sox were loved by the Windy Metropolis? The dreamed peaked when the Sox snatched the A.L., but then crashed and burned in the Fall Classic when they succumbed to those dastardly Dodgers. The twenty-one autographs on this "Wilson Official Little League" baseball were most likely collected by a young and adoring fan on a beautiful summer day at Comiskey Park and include Al Lopez (manager) and Hank Greenberg (vice president and general manager) sharing the sweet spot, Nellie Fox (1959 A.L. MVP), Luis Aparicio, Early Wynn, Norm Cash, Billy Pierce, and Rudy Arias. A light coat of shellac was applied which did a great job of preserving the autographs over the nearly sixty years since they were signed. The ball has some minor toning and the blue ballpoint signatures grade an overall 8/10. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
