As the 1940s approached, Major League Baseball endured a “changing of the guard,” as post-Deadball Era stars retired and a wave of new superstars (many from the West Coast) hit the scene. The offered OAL Harridge ball is signed by (49) of the game’s marquee names, both coming and going, from 1938. The medium-toned orb (grade “5”) is home to blue fountain pen signatures that average about (“4-5”) quality overall, with some projecting (“6”) strength. Among the legible pennings are those of P. Appleton, Averill, Bottomley, Br. Campbell, J. DiMaggio, Foxx, Gehrig, Harder, O. Hale, B. Harris, Knickerbocker, Landis (Commissioner), Newsom, Owens, C. Reynolds, Trosky, Whitehill and Wicker. Full photo LOA from James Spence Authentications (cert/hologram #X01605).
