1957, 1958 and 1960 Milwaukee Braves Team-Signed Baseballs
The Braves called Boston home for the first half of the 20th Century and have resided in Atlanta for the past 47 years. In between those two locales, the franchise spent a relatively brief, 13-year stint in Milwaukee between 1953 and 1965. The brief stay in Suds City was a successful one as the Braves produced the city's only World Series championship in 1957 and repeated as National League champs the following season. From those glory years come these three terrific baseballs, all of which are official National League (Giles) models that belonged to Red Schoendienst, who played for the club between 1957-60. The 1957 World Champs ball has Fred Haney on the sweet spot and also Red, Spahn, Aaron, Burdette, Pafko and the rest (total of 30). It is in is EX+ condition and the signatures average 7/10. The 1958 National League Champs ball has Fred Haney and Billy Herman on the sweet spot along with Red, Aaron, Mathews, Spahn, Burdette and Pafko (total of 30) and it is EX-MT with signatures averaging 7.5/10. The 1960 ball has Chuck Dressen on the sweet spot along with Red, Torre, Pafko, Spahn, Aaron, Burdette, Mathews and others. It is NRMT and the 33 signatures average 8/10.
