One of the most dominant teams of all-time was the 1929 Philadelphia Athletics. In five years (1928-32), they crushed the American League averaging a whopping 101 seasons on the way to two World Series Championships.
Connie Mack was the master behind the wheel and the team although in the shadow of the mighty Yankees (Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig were there for God’s sake) their line-up was more powerful. Behind Mack, the team had a 104-46 record in 1929 and defeated the Chicago Cubs in the World Series 4-1.
Presented is a baseball autographed by 16 members of the 1929 Philadelphia A’s as well as other major Hall of Famers and stars. It is a Reach Official ball (ESB) signed in steel tip fountain pen. Legible signers include Connie Mack, Lefty Grove, Babe Ruth, Ray Schalk, Grantland Rice, J.J. McGraw, Ty Cobb, Al Simmons, Jack Dempsey (boxer) and many others. The ball itself is toned throughout with details handwritten. There’s also a top coating on the baseball that preserved the signatures.

This ball is from one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of autographed baseballs in the world. All together they were easily displayable in custom shelf form and alphabetically displayed nonetheless. The choice of medium was visually easy for the encyclopedic collector who put these together. It took several decades to amass these rare autographs of the most prominent entertainers, historical figures and sports players. It proved quite difficult to acquire autographs of non-ballplayers on such an odd object (a baseball) but diligence proved otherwise and that it’s possible. So, now with the collection complete and his shelves empty there’s only one thing left to do….bid on this item and start the challenge to see how far you can take it.
