Official National League (Frick) baseball from the 1940's bears a strong (9/10) blue ink signature of Branch Rickey alone on a side panel. Ball itself is EX-MT and was hand painted by noted sports artist, Jolene Jessie and signed "Jessie '07". One panel sports a portrait of Branch Rickey while another has a fine color painting of Jackie Robinson. There was one other signature on the ball that has been covered by the Jackie Robinson painting. Overall even toning to the ball, but still NRMT.
