A trio of Hall of Fame talent graces the offered 1932 Washington Senators multi-signed baseball with (6) signatures. The period blue-and-red-stitched OAL Harridge baseball is penned in light blue and black ink. Found on this ball are Sweet Spot: W. Johnson (d.1946, “3”); West Panel: Judge (d.1963, “3”); East Panel: Reynolds (d.1978, “5”); North Panel: Dykes (d.1976, “8”), Griffith (d.1955, “6”) and South Panel: Cronin (d.1984, “5”). The baseball itself reveals considerable wear including signature removal on the west panel, browning and age spotting on each panel, and other instances of light abrasions throughout. Despite those flaws, the sphere provides an all-important glimpse into the best this beltway squad ever had to offer. This artifact comes with a full LOA from JSA.
Although Jimmy Dykes appears on this period ball, Dykes did not play nor coach for the Washington Senators. Most likely he was around when the ball was originally signed and he placed his moniker with the Washington Senators that did sign the ball.
