Curt Gowdy Signed Baseball Red Sox Sportscaster – COA JSAGo Back
Out of stock
Curt Gowdy was an American sportscaster, well known as the longtime “voice” of the Boston Red Sox and for his coverage of many nationally televised sporting events, primarily for NBC Sports and ABC Sports in the 1960s and 1970s. His accomplishments include coining the nickname “The Granddaddy of Them All” for the Rose Bowl Game, taking the moniker from the Cheyenne Frontier Days in his native Wyoming.
Presented is an OAL (Budig) baseball autographed by Curt Gowdy. He signed it on the sweet spot in blue ballpoint pen (“9”). The ball itself shows mild toning from age.

This ball is from one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of autographed baseballs in the world. Altogether 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.
