1955 Chicago Cubs Team-Signed ONL Ball (28 Sigs. w/Banks)

There was Banks, and then there were other guys who wore similar-looking uniforms…those adorable Cubs, especially in the ’50s. They certainly had a long lease on the second division, but by the beautifully contrasted signatures on this ball, we’d think they were world champions. And so for those readers who hold the Cubs of yore in solemn reverence, we offer this team-signed treasure which was penned in 1955 – Ernie’s second season in the Bigs. The ball is a sublimely preserved ONL (Giles) and it holds 28 autographs – all of them “trong>8” or stronger – to encompass all the principals of that team. Dutch Leonard and skipper Stan Hack occupy the sweet spot. Proceeding then, we note John Andre, Gene Baker, trong>Ernie Banks, Jim Bolger, Harry Chiti, Walker Cooper, Jim Davis, Solly Drake, Dee Fondy, Owen Friend, Warren Hacker, Ray Hayworth, Dave Hillman, Randy Jackson, Hal Jeffcoat, Sam Jones (tough autograph), Don Kaiser, Jim King, Lloyd Merriman, Eddie Miksis, Paul Minner, Harry Perkowski, Howie Pollet, Bob Rush, Hank Sauer, and Bob Speake.

Conclusively, this ball was signed in the late season of ’55. Solly Drake was called up in September that year, but then never appeared in a major league game until 1956. However, also inking the ball were Owen Friend and Walker Cooper. The former arrived in June, and the latter was released in December; thus pre-empting any notion that this could be a Spring Training ball.
