Pepper Martin Signed Baseball w/(2) Allie Reynolds & Other – COA JSAGo Back
Pepper Martin was known as the Wild Horse of the Osage because of his daring, aggressive baserunning abilities. Martin played in Major League Baseball as a third baseman and an outfielder for the St. Louis Cardinals during the 1930s and early 1940s. He was best known for his heroics during the 1931 World Series, in which he was the catalyst in a Cardinals’ upset victory over the Philadelphia Athletics.
Martin was an integral member of the Cardinals’ teams of the 1930s that became known as the Gashouse Gang for their roguish behavior and practical jokes.
Presented is an Official Texas League (Butler) baseball autographed by Pepper Martin, Allie Reynolds and another player. Martin signed it on the side panel in blue ballpoint pen (“7”). Note, it can be displayed as a single-signed Martin baseball. The Reynolds signature is on the sweet spot (“9”) with another signature on the bottom panel. The ball itself shows toning from age throughout.

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.
