Jake LaMotta Signed Baseball Boxer (The Raging Bull) – COA JSAGo Back
Presented is an OML (Selig) baseball autographed by Jake LaMotta. He signed it left of the sweet spot in a blue ballpoint pen (“9”).
Jake LaMotta was an American professional boxer, world middleweight champion, and stand-up comedian. Nicknamed “The Bronx Bull” or “Raging Bull“, LaMotta was a rough fighter who was not a particularly big puncher, but he would subject his opponents to vicious beatings in the ring. With the use of constant stalking, brawling, and inside fighting, he developed the reputation for being a “bully”; he was what is often referred to today as a swarmer and a slugger. Due to his hard style of fighting, LaMotta often got as much as he was given in an era of great middleweights.

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.
