    1959 Harmon Killebrew Signed Home Run #32 Baseball--Career #43, MEARS Authentic. He struck out too many times and was never a defensive standout, but Harmon Killebrew could hit a home run like few before or after him. By the time he finally hung up the spikes, Killebrew looked up to only four men on the all-time home run list. Nobody could have predicted Killebrew would put up the power numbers he did when he first entered the scene in 1954. Killebrew's breakout campaign occurred in 1959 when he led the Junior Circuit with forty-two home runs. Before his big season, he was a part-time player who showed only an occasional glimpse of future greatness.

    Here we offer the very OAL (Harridge) baseball Killer clubbed into the stands for his forty-third home run of a burgeoning career. The homer took place during the second game of a twin bill against Kansas City July 19, 1959. Tom Sturdivant served one up and Killebrew deposited the pitch into the left field stands - his thirty-second homer of the season. Noticeable dirt spots appear on the aged orb. Killebrew graciously signed (7/10) the sweet spot. The inscription "7/19/1959 No. 32" is in an unknown hand. "No. 32" is also written on another side panel.

    This baseball derives from the only known complete collection of 500 Home Run Club home run baseballs, one of several on offer within this Platinum Night event. LOA from MEARS, Authentic. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
