Description

Oh, the incredible heritage linked to this multi-signed souvenir! At a glance, we have a clean and creamy unofficial orb manufactured by the erstwhile “Harwood” plant in Natick, Massachusetts. The ball itself flaunts an absolutely gorgeous clean and creamy surface with prominent trademark stampings and vibrant alternating green-and-red laces. But as you behold the magnificent pennings, the mind wanders to recall three Hall of Fame icons and a lesser-known mentor whom, at separate times, they all sought in honing their skills. Just to the right of the sweet spot, Jimmie Foxx has signed in black-ink steel tip fountain pen. The flowing penmanship projects (“6-7”) strength and clarity and can easily display as a single-signed souvenir. On the north panel, Frankie Frisch has signed in black-ink fountain pen, his scripting showing every bit of (“8”) potency. On the west panel, Joe Cronin has signed in black-ink fountain pen (“5-6” strength), with an unknown printed name accompanying. Finally, the south panel is home to a black-ink signature of Jack Onslow (“6” strength). A .169 hitter in his brief Major League career, Onslow toiled for 12 minor league seasons, including a 1914 stint with the Providence Grays during which he was Babe Ruth’s battery mate. He then coached for five separate Major League teams that led to direct encounters with the above-mentioned stars. Full photo LOA from JSA.
