The leader of the Republican Party in the House of Representatives, he later served as the 40th vice president of the United States from 1973 to 1974. When Nixon resigned in 1974, Ford succeeded to the presidency. He was defeated for election to a full term, in 1976.
Presented is an ONL (Feeney) baseball autographed by former President Gerald Ford. He signed it on a side panel in blue ballpoint pen (“8”) with the short form of his name “Jerry”. The ball itself shows toning from age. There’s an additional provenance inscription on the opposite side written in an unknown hand. According to the inscription, it was signed at the Army vs. Navy game 11/30/74.

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.
