Billy Martin Signed Baseball w/ Davey Lopes & Other – COA JSAGo Back
The 1982 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was the 53rd midseason exhibition between the all-stars of the American League (AL) and the National League (NL), the two leagues comprising Major League Baseball. The game was played on July 13, 1982, at Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, home of the Montreal Expos of the National League. The game resulted in a 4–1 victory for the NL, and Cincinnati Reds shortstop Dave Concepción was named the MVP.
It is also the last All-Star Game in which the manager of the runner-up for any league pennant managed in place of the manager of the defending league champions due to the latter’s unemployment; Billy Martin of the Oakland Athletics managed in place of Bob Lemon, who had been fired by the New York Yankees, Martin’s former team.
Presented is an OAL (MacPhail) baseball autographed on the sweet spot by Billy Martin. The baseball itself is toned throughout and it shows soiling. It was apparently signed at the 1982 All Star Game as there is a notation near the bottom autographs. Which as to be noted, the additional two signatures on the bottom panel include Davey Lopes and other. All three signatures are in blue ballpoint (“8-9”). The signatures were also top coated to preserve the integrity of the autograph.
