    1970's George Sosnak Folk Art Baseball, Clown Prince of Baseball Max Patkin Signed by Patkin. Max Patkin entertained millions of baseball fans throughout the country. The Clown Prince of Baseball had a zany act which kept minor league fans on the edge of their seat each time he surfaced. For 51 years, Patkin's act filled our summer afternoons and nights. Created by George Sosnak is this Official Florida State League baseball (George McDonald) paying homage to the funnyman. The rendering begins on the sweet spot and spills into a side panel. An image of Patkin is visible along with a few stats. Patkin's signature is built into the toned ball as well. Blue and red ink surrounds all of the stitching for added beauty. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
