Description

You could easily call Nellie Fox a great hitter but you could never call him a slugger. Hall of Famer Fox had a ton of hits – 2,663 to be exact – but very few of them – 35 – went over a fence. The 10-time All-Star who was voted the American League’s MVP in 1959 wasn’t just a terrific contact hitter – he struck out a mere 216 times in over 9,200 at-bats – but he also won a Gold Glove three times. The baseball he signed is on Chicago White Sox ball and his name appears beautifully in blue ink on the side panel. Fox used his full first name, Nelson, and wrote it in the large, graceful script. Fox’s signature grades are 8-9. This is an item for collectors who know the value of getting on base is often overlooked during those times, like now, when the hitters who are best rewarded are those who swing from the heels. Also on this ball on the other side panel is a signature signed by Billy Pierce who played with the White Sox. The signature was signed blue felt pen and grades 8-9.

Walter William Pierce (April 2, 1927 – July 31, 2015) was an American starting pitcher in Major League Baseball between 1945 and 1964 who played most of his career for the Chicago White Sox. He was the team’s star pitcher in the decade from 1952 to 1961, when they posted the third-best record in the major leagues and received the Sporting News Pitcher of the Year Award for the American League (AL) in 1956 and 1957 after being runner-up in both 1953 and 1955. A seven-time All-Star, he led the American League (AL) in complete games three times despite his slight build, and in wins, earned run average (ERA) and strikeouts once each. He pitched four one-hitters and seven two-hitters in his career, and on June 27, 1958, came within one batter of becoming the first left-hander in 78 years to throw a perfect game.
