With a commanding three games-to-one lead and just eight outs away from becoming the first N.L. team to secure back-to-back World Series titles since the 1921-1922 Giants, the 1968 St. Louis Cardinals succumbed to the Detroit Tigers, dropping the final three games of the Fall Classic. This lightly toned ONL Giles ball is signed by (25) members of that runner-up Redbird squad. Under a thin coat of shellac, ballpoint pennings average (7) potency. Keys include: Carlton, Cepeda, Flood, Gibson, Maris, Schoendienst and Willis. Cert/sticker from SGC.

Sweet Spot: Cepeda ("8" strength) and Schoendienst (manager, "8" strength); North Panel: Hughes, Schofield, Granger, Milliken (coach), unidentified, Maris ("7-8" strength) and Willis (d.1977; "6-7" strenght); South Panel: Briles, Carlton ("7" strength), Tolan, Edwards, Gagliano,, McCarver and Ricketts; West Panel: Hague, Sisler (coach), Maxvill, Flood ("8" strength), Hoerner and Washburn; East Panel: Nelson, Davis and Gibson ("6-7" strength)
