Description

Tickets and Publications At the dawn of their three-year reign of dominance, presented is an array of Baltimore Orioles items, the foremost being a signed 1968 team ball. The signed team ball contains (27) signatures, which grade between ("8"-"10") with many on the higher end of the spectrum, and is missing only Jim Palmer. With seven deceased players or coaches, the ball highlights include Frank and Brooks Robinson, Earl Weaver, Dave McNally, George Bamberger and Mark Belanger. Also present is an April 9, 1966 edition (VG) of the Sporting News signed by both Brooks and Frank Robinson. The "Human Vacuum Cleaner” adds an interesting "To a Great Yankee" notation and the signatures grade between a ("8" and "9"). A trio of 1983 Playoff tickets (2 World Series, 1 ALCS) grading (NM, EX-MT, VG) and a 1983 media guide (VG-EX) round out this "Charm City" collection. The lot comes with an auction COA from James Spence Authentications. For a complete list of players on the baseball, please visit our website.
