Not quite on par with the impending “impossible dream” squad, the 1964 Boston Red Sox still fielded a power-packed lineup with seven starters racking up double digit home runs. Presented is a 1964 Red Sox “spring training” team-signed baseball with (27) signatures. Averaging (“6-8”) in potency unless noted, the blue ballpoint pen signatures are applied to an OAL/Cronin ball (EX-MT). Key signers are: T. Conigliaro, G. Geiger, B. Monbouquette, D. Morehead, D. Radatz, C. Schilling (“4-5”), B. Turley, D. Williams. Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
