In his first year as commissioner of baseball, Bowie Kuhn headed a U.S.O. goodwill tour to Vietnam, taking former and current Major League stars overseas to lift the spirits of American soldiers. The offered baseball hails from that journey and was autographed by five participants. The creamy orb (grade 6-7) is minimally affected by a series of surface abrasions. The ballpoint signatures, meanwhile, average (8) strength and clarity. Includes: Sweet Spot: Joe DiMaggio; North Panel: Ron Swoboda; South Panel: Bowie Kuhn; West Panel: Milt Pappas; East Panel: "Mudcat" Grant. Full photo LOA from James Spence Authentications.
