Presented is an ONL (Coleman) baseball autographed by Sam Jethroe. He signed it on the sweet spot in a blue ballpoint pen (“6”).
Sam Jethroe nicknamed “The Jet” was an American center fielder in Negro league and Major League Baseball. With the Cincinnati & Cleveland Buckeyes, he won a pair of batting titles, hit .340 over seven seasons from 1942 to 1948, and helped the team to two pennants and the 1945 Negro World Series title. He was named the National League’s Rookie of the Year in 1950 with the Boston Braves and led the NL in stolen bases in his first two seasons.

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.
