    1974 Hall of Fame Induction Multi Signed Baseball - Whitey Ford's Personal Signed Baseball. Hall of Fame induction weekend took on an entirely different meaning for Whitey Ford in 1974.

Signed for Ford during his induction weekend is this ONL (Giles) baseball. Twenty-four signatures grace the slightly aged horsehide. The black ballpoint signatures average 2/10 to 7/10 while their blue counterparts are 8/10 or better. Included are: Mantle, Musial, Medwick, Ford, Conlan, Paige, Bell, Grove, Feller, Haines (reduced), Hooper (reduced), Campanella (clubhouse), Terry, Gehringer, Coveleski, Lloyd Waner, George Kelly (reduced), Ruffing, Spahn, Cool Papa Bell, Grove, Irvin, Feller, Marquard, Buck Leonard and Lyons.
