Description

Louise Erickson was a pitcher who played from 1948 through 1950 in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL). She was nicknamed Lou by her teammates. Erickson opened 1949 with the Rockford Peaches. She was added to the pitching rotation, becoming the third starter on an excellent staff behind Lois Florreich and Helen Fox. Erickson responded to more mound time with a 17–6 record and a 1.76 ERA in 216 innings, including seven shutouts, while ranking fourth in the league in wins and winning percentage (.739), gaining selection to the All-Star team.

Presented is an unofficial baseball autographed by Louise Erickson. She signed it throughout the ball in black ink (“3-4” very light has faded) with career inscriptions on the different panels, “All American Girls Prof. Baseball – Wall of Honor Milwaukee May 24, ’05 – Cooperstown Nov. 5, 1988 – Rockford Peaches 1950 36 W 17 L Pitcher – Racine Belles 1948 1 W 0 L -Pitcher ”. Also included is a baseball card of her autographed in black felt tip (“9”).

Authentication: JSA Basic Cert & Sticker

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.
