Description

Although the National League bested their American League counterparts in the 1956 edition of the midsummer classic, the junior circuit was still led by plenty of Hall of Fame talent and star power. The offered 1956 American League All-Star team-signed baseball is packed with (27) signatures on a period OAL Harridge ball. The sphere is signed in blue ink, and the ball is only moderately worn, grading a (5). Each ungraded penning also grades in the (5-6) range with some better and others lesser. Signatories include Sweet Spot: T. Williams (d.2002, 7), Mantle (d.1995, 7); West Panel: Brewer, Silvera, Maxwell, Score, McDougald, Wynn (d.1999, 7); East Panel: Berra (6), Sievers, Pierce, Lollar (d.1977, 4), Stengel (d.1975, 6), Power (d.2005); North Panel: Kaline (6), Piersall, N. Fox (d.1975, 6), Kucks, Kell (6), Score; South Panel: B. Martin (d.1989, 3), R. Boone (d.2004), Kuenn (d.1988, 6), Sullivan, Ford (5), Turner (d.1998) and Vernon. The signatures on this historic multi-signed baseball come with an auction COA from James Spence Authentications.
