Primed to become the first National League team to win back-to-back World Series titles since the 1921-1922 Giants, the 1968 St. Louis Cardinals had a commanding three games-to-one advantage before bowing to the Detroit Tigers. This ONL Giles ball is signed by (28) members of that Redbird roster. The mildly toned orb (grade “7”) is home to black ballpoint pennings that, while somewhat faded, average (“5”) strength. Keys include: Brock, Carlton, Cepeda, Flood, Gibson, Maris and Schoendienst. Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
