Aside from the notable signatories, this is "a ball with a story."
Signed in vivid red ink in by Mickey Mantle on the sweet spot, and Roger Maris on the south panel in 1961, it was originally the property of a young boy - a fan of the arch-rival Boston Red Sox. After giving the ball to an ailing friend, it was returned to the original owner four decades later, spawning stories chronicling its journey in Forbes, Sports Collectors Daily, and many other outlets. And it is now yours for the offering. Signatures rate a strong 9/10 and the Official Little League ball itself is in NRMT condition.
