Large Collection of Single-Signed and Team-Signed Baseballs - Balance of Shannon Collection (260+)
This is the last installment of baseballs from the Mike Shannon collection, many of which were on display in the popular Cardinal's St. Louis restaurant. Majority are on Official NL or ML balls, with some on specialty issues such as World Series and Cardinals souvenir balls. Mike obtained these signatures in person or from team members or officials and there is varying amounts of toning on many of the balls, with the signatures averaging 7.5/10, many better. The majority are single-signed but there are also many teams (mostly Cardinals from 1980s-to-2000s), multi-signed including combos and oddities such as Old Timers. There is also duplication - the names marked with a + below are all duplicated, some up to 10 times. Here's a sampling: Maris (light signature), Rose, Bench+, Mays+, Mays/McCovey+, Lasorda, Brock+, Brock/Gibson, Torre, Len Coleman, Eckstein, Edmonds, Ashburn+, LaRussa, Ripken Jr., Drysdale, Garagiola+, Pujols/Brett, Pujols+, Larsen, Lesley Visser+, Gwynn+, Kaline, Lolich, Kiner, Santo, early 1960s PCL team w/Shannon, Morgan, John Goodman, Will Farell, Costas, Dale Murphy+, Cardinals Hall of Famers w/Musial, Snider/Koufax/Drysdale, 1994 Cardinals+, 2002 Cardinals, 2004 Cardinals, Berra, Old Timers w/Musial & Flood, McGwire, Buck/Caray, Zimmer, Caray, J. Morgan, Seaver, ML announcers, and many, many more. Great breakdown potential, or to start or build your own collection of many of baseball's greats.
