    Description

    1980's Cool Papa Bell Single Signed Baseball. A fabulous pre-stroke exemplar of this Negro League icon and baseball immortal dates from the 1980's. We all know Bell was fast, but he was also a fine hitter, fielder and extremely intelligent base runner. OAL (Brown) baseball has some very light toning in spots. "James "Cool Papa" Bell" is magnificently penned across the sweet spot in NRMT blue ink. While Bell did sign a lot in his later years, it's challenging to find a pre-stroke single which includes his entire name, nickname, plus sweet spot positioning, as he often signed on the side panel. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,000 - up.
