Description

Presented is an ONL (Coleman) baseball autographed by Marty “Stats” Marion. “He inscribed his nickname in his signature”.   He signed it on the sweet spot in blue ballpoint pen (“9”).

Marty Marion nickname “Stats” played shortstop and manager. Marion played for the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Browns between 1940–1953. He later became the manager of the Chicago White Sox. Marion had unusually long arms that reached for grounders like tentacles, prompting sportswriters to call him “The Octopus”.  In 1941 he played all 154 games at shortstop (also a league-high) and in 1947 he made only 15 errors for a consistent .981 percentage. Marion was also a better-than-average hitter for a shortstop.

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.
