Tracy Stallard Signed Boston Red Sox Baseball – COA JSA (zq 123)Go Back
Out of stock
Journeyman hurler Tracy Stallard was part of the 1961 Roger Maris saga. He recalls yielding the historic record breaking 61st home run with vivid clarity on this signed and inscribed OAL (Budig) baseball.
The mildly toned OAL Budig sphere is signed by Stallard on a side panel in black ballpoint pen. Penned in Stallard’s hand on adjacent panels, the inscription reads:
“Final game of season 10/1/61 I arrived at Yankee Stadium one hour before game time having no clue who was going to pitch when Sal Maglie handed me the ball. The first inning Maris popped up to the infield. Third inn. Score 0-0 count 2-0 a pitch on the inner part of the plate. He hit it high & hard it landed in right field seats for his 61st home run that broke Babe Ruth’s single season record. I faced Roger in the 7th and struck him out. He told me later at least I had the nerve to pitch to him lost game 1-0.”
This baseball is very rare and only a handful were created like this. Originally priced at $2500.
