Description

    The Only Known Bobby Jones Single Signed Baseball. We wrestled with the decision of whether to place this piece into the baseball section of the catalog, or into the golf section, and ultimately opted for the former. While Bobby Jones and golf were practically synonymous during the first half of the twentieth century, we concluded that it would be the baseball collectors who would fully appreciate just how unusual and appealing is the appearance of his autograph on horsehide. This is certainly our first encounter with such a piece, and we'd be surprised if it isn't our last as well. Mr. Jones handled the quirky request quite well, it must be noted, as his black fountain pen inscription, "With best wishes, Robert T. Jones, Jr.," skillfully fills the side panel of the presented non-official ball, surviving at an average boldness of 8/10. The ball shows considerable wear, though it appears the bulk predates the signing. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
