Basking in the glow of their stunning 1960 World Series victory, several of the Pittsburgh Pirates veteran heroes combined with youthful up-and-comers to decorate a vintage ONL/Giles baseball (NM) with their signatures. This multi-signed ball features the endorsements of (19) c.1961-1962 Pirates including HOFers R. Clemente (6-7) and B. Mazeroski (5-6). Other key signers are: R. Face (5), V. Law (6) and B. Veale (5-6). Manager D. Murtaughs signature is noted on the LOA as a clubhouse version. Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
The Clemente autograph is the boldest penning on this ball and presents dynamically. It would rate a grade or two higher were it not affected by minor ink migration. The other (18) autographs are similarly affected by moderate fading and range (5 to 7) in strength unless noted. The list of signers is as follows:
Sweet Spot: D. Murtaugh (manager, clubhouse)
North Panel: T. Sturdivant, R. Face, L. Foss, B. Friend, O. McFarlane, B. Bailey, D. Olivo
South Panel: A. McBean, D. Schofield (3), R. Johnston (4-5), B. Veale
East Panel: T. Parsons, B. Mazeroski, unknown, unknown, R. Clemente
