Erma Bergmann Signed Baseball & Card Muskegon Lassies – COA JSAGo Back
Since the only organized ball for women in the country was softball, the AAGPBL created a hybrid game which included both softball and baseball. Over the twelve years of history of the league, the rules were gradually modified to more closely resemble baseball. Throwing underhand, Erma Bergmann was one of the few AAGPBL hurlers to pitch all three styles in the league’s history, being able to make the transition to full sidearm in 1947 and overhand pitching in 1948.
Presented is an unofficial baseball autographed by Erma Bergmann. She signed it on the sweet spot in black ink (“6”) with the inscription, “A.A.G.P.B.L. – 1946-51”. Also included is a baseball card of her autographed in black felt tip (“9”).

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.
