Don Budge Signed Baseball Tennis Player – COA JSAGo Back
Out of stock
Presented is an OAL (Brown) baseball autographed by Don Budge. He signed it on the side panel in a blue ballpoint pen (“9”). The ball itself shows little toning from age.
Don Budge was an American tennis player. He is most famous as the first player — of any nationality, male or female, and still the only American male — to win the four tournaments that comprise the Grand Slam of tennis in a single year. He is also the only male player to have achieved the triple crown (winning singles, doubles, and mixed at the same tournament) on three separate occasions, and the only one to have achieved it twice in one year.

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.
