    Description

    Circa 1949 George Sisler Signed Baseball. The first great first baseman of the Twentieth Century and first league MVP, George Sisler was lightning on the base paths, exceptional in the field, and most likely the best looking .400 hitter of that elite society. After his playing days were done, he scouted Jackie Robinson and helped prep him for the major leagues. Later, he worked with Roberto Clemente on his hitting.

    Here Gorgeous George applies his autograph, large and bold, to a side panel of "Official 97 League" baseball in 9.5/10 blue ink. While the sphere has also been signed by sixty-two others, his is far and away the most prominent and "best looking" of the bunch, which include Major Leaguers, non-Major Leaguers an several unknowns. Full LOA from Beckett Authentication Services. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
