With 10 “walk-off” triumphs and a torrid 36-13 mark to close the regular season, the 1973 Baltimore Orioles won the franchise’s fourth division crown in five seasons. This OAL Cronin ball is signed by (27) of those high-flying Birds. The creamy orb (grade “8-9”) features ballpoint pennings whose strengths range between (“9-10”) and (“6”), with ink migration affecting some. Keys include: Belanger, Bumbry, Grich, McNally, Palmer, Powell, B. Robinson and Weaver. Full photo LOA from JSA.
