    Description

    1964 Eddie Mathews Career Home Run #425 Baseball, MEARS Authentic. Eddie Mathews should be classified as Mr. Braves. The Hall of Famer, and member of the exclusive 500 Home Run Club, was the only man who played for the Braves organization during its existence in Boston, Milwaukee and Atlanta. During his lengthy career, Mathews was always known for his home run prowess which produced 512 dingers. Art Mahaffey tried to sneak this ONL (Giles) ball past Mathews during their eighth inning encounter May 7, 1964 at Connie Mack Stadium. Let's just say he failed.

    Mathews deposited this orb into the seats for his 425th career home run. The ball shows great overall use. The particulars are spelled out on the sweet spot and two side panels albeit in fading ink in an unknown hand - "Eddie Mathews 3 RBI, 8th Inn for mil, Phillies 9 to 6 (score), Phillies vs. Mil., Thursday, May 7, 1964, Connie Mack Stadium."

    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.
