John Roseboro Signed Baseball Dodgers – COA JSAGo Back
Presented is an ONL (Coleman) baseball autographed by John Roseboro. He signed it on the sweet spot in blue ballpoint pen (“9”). The ball itself shows toning from age.
John Roseboro player and coach played as a catcher in Major League Baseball from 1957 until 1970, most notably for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Roseboro, who was a four-time All-Star player and won two Gold Glove Awards, is considered one of the best defensive catchers of the 1960s. He was the Dodgers’ starting catcher in four World Series with the Dodgers winning three of those. Roseboro was known for his role in one of the most violent incidents in baseball history when Juan Marichal struck him in the head with a bat during a game in 1965.

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.
