Lot 1072: "Wahoo" Sam Crawford Single Signed Baseball
Before there was Ruth and Gehrig, there was Ty Cobb and this man. Crawford retired just thirty-six hits short of 3,000, so you can imagine what a one-two punch these guys provided the Detroit Tigers. One side panel of this off-brand ball is signed "Wahoo Sam Crawford" and dated "Sept. 4 - 1965." The other panel recounts the Hall of Fame stats of this rare talent. NRMT-MT. Also included are two handwritten index cards from Crawford. First accompanied the baseball and notes that the autograph seeker owes Wahoo eighteen cents for postage. The second reads, "Tom, A few months ago I autographed a ball for you. Now the plaque cards. Must ask you to please desist." Each is signed "S.C." Cards are NRMT as well.
