1929 Paul Waner & Lloyd Waner Signed NL Baseball Great Inscription! JSA COA
Separating this ball from typical examples is the amusing inscription that accompanies Paul Waner’s stylish signature, which reads in full as “Yes- Paul Waner your honor my a _ _?” on the ball’s north panel. Nearly as distinct as the elder Waner sibling’s autograph, Lloyd Waner’s signature sits alone on the east panel, next to the Spalding logo. Also present are the signatures of 1925-1931 Pirate infielder George Grantham (d.1954) signed prominently across the west panel and sweet spot as "Geo. "Boots" Grantham" and 1928-1932 Pirate pitcher Erv Brame (d.1949) on the west panel.
The ball is dated to the 1928-1933 period of issue by the factory stamp characteristics, which are: NL President John Heydler’s facsimile signature on the panel to the right of the “Official National League” stamp on the reverse sweet spot; the patent date being located on the panel above the RSS; and the larger stitching type on the Spalding logo below the RSS.
Comes with full letter COA from James Spence JSA.
