With the largest Hall of Fame class and biggest crowd since 1939, Cooperstown opened its arms to 6 new inductees, including the great Joltin' Joe. (A brief news clip of induction-ceremony footage can be viewed on our website.) The festivities also marked the very last of many Hall of Fame appearances by Cy Young, whose autograph is present here but who died a few months later. The creamy-toned OAL (Harridge) ball features "8-10" signatures overall.
