Perhaps this title should read "Duel Signed." Pete Rose and Bart Giamatti are forever linked in baseball history in light of Rose's admitted betting on baseball games and the subsequent lifetime ban handed down by the commissioner. This Official National League (Feeney) ball is evenly toned and in EXMT condition. The signatures are - perhaps fittingly - on opposite panels, with both rating 9/10. Rose, the game's all-time hits leader, was a sure bet as a first-ballot Hall of Famer until reports of his gambling surfaced and forever tarnished his legacy. It remains to be seen whether he will be reinstated and eventually take what many feel is his rightful place among baseball's all-time greats in Cooperstown. This is a rare and important keepsake.
