Lot 590: Lefty Grove Single Signed Baseball & Hall of Fame Plaques
One Lefty Grove autograph is precious. How about three signatures of the Hall of Fame portsider - one on a Spalding "Baseball Hall of Fame" ball and two penned on Hall of Fame plaque postcards (one gold and one black and white)? Intended for his nephew, Grove wrote on the offered ball with the same precision he used to win 300 games (sig. rates a 9/10). Despite a few patches of staining, forcing a grade of VG-EX, the sphere displays nicely, with none of the aforementioned soiling affecting the signature. The accompanying Hall of Fame postcards rate NRMT and feature bold (9-10/10) signatures, with the black and white example bearing the nifty inscription "To sis Mary" on the reverse.
