    Description

    2007 World Series Game One Dustin Pedroia Home Run Baseball. The defining moment of Pedroia's 2007 American League Rookie of the Year season came just two pitches into that year's Fall Classic, as he took Colorado Rockies ace Jeff Francis deep over Fenway Park's fabled Green Monster, only the second time in history that the first batter in a World Series has homered. Presented here is that very baseball that set the dominant tone for the 2007 Series, which the Sox led for all but four of the thirty-six innings it took to secure its second World Championship in four seasons. The Official World Series baseball is nicely rubbed up for its brief, dramatic service to Red Sox history, with the golden stamping seeming particularly appropriate in this context. Pedroia's 10/10 black felt tip signature adorns the sweet spot, and his notation "Laser show," a reference to an earlier boast about his slugging abilities that made the newspaper rounds, stretching across the eastern side panel. The airtight provenance comes in the form of an Official Major League Baseball holographic authenticating sticker with the serial number "BB 680452." This number can be referenced at the www.MLB.com website by choosing "MLB Authentication" from the drop-down menu entitled "Auction" at the top banner of the homepage. As fitting a symbol as any for the Sox' transformation from heartbreak kids to heavyweight champs, this baseball will surely cause quite a stir among the Fenway faithful. We'll see who's the biggest Red Sox fan of all when the hammer falls on this lot. MLB Authentication sticker. LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph). LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).
