Description

Throughout his presidency, Dwight Eisenhower adhered to a political philosophy of dynamic conservatism. A self-described “progressive conservative” who used terms like “progressive moderate” and “dynamic conservatism” to describe his approach, he continued all the major New Deal programs still in operation, especially Social Security. He expanded its programs and rolled them into a new cabinet-level agency, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, while extending benefits to an additional ten million workers. He implemented integration in the Armed Services in two years, which had not been completed under Truman.

Here across the sweet spot of this baseball, Dwight Eisenhower applied his blue steel tip fountain pen ink (“8-9”) signature. The manufacturer of the baseball has been obscured by the even toning/soiling. The ever important Presidential signature on the sweet spot remains largely unaffected. Presidential autographs are a tremendous collectible. The further back in time you go the less chance of opportunity there is to find a President’s signature on a baseball. Eisenhower is no exception and a true gem to find in this condition.

This ball is from one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of autographed baseballs in the world. All together 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.
