Description



His fourteen-year career defined by a two-hour and six-minute performance, Don Larsen permanently etched his name into diamond folklore with a perfect game in the 1956 World Series. The offered items have been autographed by the well-traveled hurler and include:

Perfect Game Display framed to dimensions of 14 x 11-3/4”, the display features a 4-3/4 x 5” printed box score signed in black ink by Larsen (“8-9” strength); a 2-3/4 x 4-1/2” black-and-white likeness of Larsen delivering the final pitch (not signed); and a Yankee Stadium ticket stub from the historic Game 5 (Mantle HR) signed by Larsen in black marker (“8-9” strength). The stub shows apparent (VG-EX) quality with sharp edges and a series of faint creases at the lower left. Piece comes with an auction LOA from James Spence Authentications.

Don Larsen Signed San Francisco Giants Home Jersey a white knit replica button-down garment tailored to the specifications of the jerseys Larsen wore during his tenure (1962-1964) with the Giants. “GIANTS” is arched across the chest in black-on-orange double twill and “18” is sewn to the back in like fashion. Just above the latter identifier, Larsen’s black marker signature shows (“6-7”) strength and clarity. Black-and-orange striped piping lines the collar and sleeve endings, and the collar is home to a “W.A. Goodman & Sons” size “46” label. James Spence Authentications cert/hologram #F49389.
