The second part to the American League’s original great one-two punch (Cobb & Crawford) has signed on the panel of this non-official ball. Nice inscription and signature spans both panels including the sweet spot: “To Russ - With all good wishes, Wahoo Sam Crawford - June 8, 1959.” Penned just two years after he was enshrined in the Hall of Fame, the vintage signature grades a “7” out of a possible 10. Surface of the ball is shellacked, but the years have caused some crazing throughout. The golden brown patina gives the sphere its rich, illustrious “glow.”
