    1951 All-Star Team Signed Baseball with Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford & Others. The All-Star Game brought out all the big names to Detroit in 1951. Even the finest hitter of them all, Ty Cobb, was drawn to Briggs Stadium to check out the new generation of superstars. One autograph seeker brought this OAL ball to the park and somehow squeezed thirty-seven signatures onto the ball. The orb is marvelously aged and the signatures are 9/10 to 10/10 in strength. Cobb takes top billing on this ball as he signed a side panel. Those who signed include: Hank Greenberg, Bobby Doerr, Sam Crawford, Del Ennis, Robin Roberts, Pete Fox, Ellis Ryan, Curt Simmons, Hal White, Red Schoendienst, Happy Chandler, Enos Slaughter, Ford Frick, Chico Carrasquel, Bob Lemon, Ken Silvestri, Richie Ashburn, Willie Jones, Stan Musial, Bob Porter, Dizzy Trout and more. The "Rizzuto" on the sweet spot is written in an unknown hand and there are six unidentifiable signatures on the ball not authenticated by PSA or JSA. A program from the game will attend. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
