Tino Martinez Signed Baseball Mariners – COA JSAGo Back
Out of stock
Presented is an OML (Selig) baseball autographed by Tino Martinez. He signed it on the side panel in black ballpoint pen (“8”). The ball itself shows toning from age.
Tino Martinez’s nickname is The Bam-tino, which came from a home run in game 1 of the 1998 World Series played for the Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, and Tampa Bay Devil Rays from 1990 through 2005. He also served as a hitting coach for the Miami Marlins in 2013. Formerly a third baseman and first baseman, Martinez was the first-round draft pick for the Seattle Mariners in 1988 out of the University of Tampa where he starred during his time on campus. During his 16-year MLB career, he scored 1,008 runs, drove in 1,271 runs, and hit 339 home runs. He had 100 or more RBI in six different seasons and was twice named to the All-Star team.

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.
