1960's Freddie Lindstrom Single Signed "Stat" Baseball, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8.
Closed Auction

About the object

Eighteen years old when he burst onto the scene with a .333 batting average in the 1924 World Series, the young third baseman would continue to develop into a Hall of Fame-caliber player over thirteen seasons, earning his bronze plaque in 1976. Though he'd live five more years after his Cooperstown coronation, Lindstrom remains maddeningly rare in single signed baseball format--it's been over three years since the last specimen crossed our desks.And what a way to end that drought, with a specimen that should garner universal consensus as the finest that exists. To the best of our knowledge, this is the sole "stat" ball from the National League superstar ever presented to the collecting community. We begin with a side panel signature on an ONL (Giles) ball, crossing the stitching to find a lengthy inscription, as follows:"Years in majors 1924-1936, Lifetime Batting Average - .311, Total games 1,438, World Series 1924, 1935." Blue ballpoint ink averages 8/10. Ball is very minimally toned with age, presenting beautifully, a 7/10. A half-point adjustment for visual strength concludes the PSA/DNA scoring. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the advanced collector of Hall of Fame singles. HID07601242017
