Description



Quite the lineup of sports legends gathered at the annual "Tops in Sports Banquet". Held each January for decades, this prestigious event gave rise to some inspiring collectibles, including the ball offered here. Decorated with (14) autographs, this OAL/Cronin ball has faded factory labeling stamps that show just enough detail to make out the type. As for the signers, there are some very exciting names noted, with: sweet spot: Hank Greenberg ("7-8", d.1986), Johnny Unitas ("6-7", d.2002); north panel: Jim Lemon ("7-8", d.2006), Brooks Robinson ("5"), Lenny Moore ("7"); south panel: Elston Howard ("8", d.1980), Harmon Killebrew ("8", d.2011), Chuck Thompson ("7", d.2005), Dick Hall ("7-8"); east panel: Jack Ogden ("6-7", d.1977); west panel: Dean Chance ("8", d.2015), Phil Linz ("7-8", d.2020), Eddie Rommel ("8", d.1970), Dave Boswell ("8", d.2012). Auction LOA from JSA.
