For a point of historical importance, "Paddy" Livingston (d.1977) played his first major league game with the Cleveland Blues in 1901, during the American League's inaugural season. After bouncing around the majors and minors for eight years, Livingston landed a three-year stint with Connie Mack's first great dynasty. This fortunate employment saw the back-up catcher win World Series championships with the Philadelphia Athletics in 1910 and 1911. Livingston proudly noted his good fortune, when he autographed the offered single-signed baseball with the inclusion of the inscription "Worlds Champs 1910-1911".
Applied across the west panel and sweet spot of a McGregor Official 97 League ball, Livingston's autograph and inscription show minor, sporadic fading mainly on the nickname segment, however this vintage signature retains sufficient integrity to merit a ("5-6") strength rating. This fifty-plus year old baseball also shows some light fading of the factory labeling stamps, but remains in pleasing state with a clean, slightly off-white surface, to merit an (EX+) designation. Given the scarcity of Livingston signed balls, this one stacks up as a very respectable example. Full photo LOA from PSA/DNA.
