Not to be outdone by Joe Namath’s brash predictions and subsequent 1969 Super Bowl conquest, that year’s New York Mets followed suit with arguably the greatest upset in World Series annals. This ONL Giles ball is autographed by (28) members of that improbable championship roster. The creamy orb (grade “8”) showcases black ballpoint pennings averaging (“6-7”) potency with keys including: Berra (coach), Clendenon, Frisella (d.1977), Koosman, Ryan, Seaver and Swoboda.
