    Late 1980's Eddie Montague & Lee Weyer Signed Baseball to Pete Rose. Wherever they went on this night in the late 1980's to eat, it must have really impressed the umpires that accompanied Pete Rose. Two of them signed this ONL (Giamatti) baseball to Rose, as the following:

    "Pete, Thanks for a great evening. Super place & Super Food. Your Pal, Eddie Montague N.L. Umpire #11" and "Pete, Thanks for a great dinner. That is a Super Restaurant. Big League Sea Food! Really Appreciate it, Lee."

    Lee is referring to former umpire Lee Weyer, who appeared in four World Series. Eddie Montague served as a Major League umpire from 1974 to 2009. Signatures are in 8/10 blue ball point. Ball itself exhibits heavy toning. COA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
