Carl Mays autographed baseball. Crisp, bold black ink signature stacked below personalized greeting, “To Ed” on the East Panel of an Official International League ball. A nearly imperceptible light Krylon coat keeps this cream-colored ball NrMT/MINT in appearance. Mays is best remembered for the pitch he threw that hit and tragically killed Cleveland shortstop Ray Chapman on August 16, 1920. But historians claim that the 15-year career that saw him finish with a 208-126 record and a 2.92 ERA makes him long-overdue for Cooperstown induction. And only two years ago Mays barely missed election by the veterans committee. He died in 1971 and this is the only single-signed ball from this historical pitching great that we have ever seen. Watch its value soar when Chapman is finally forgiven for the pitch that got away and recognized for the totality of his accomplishments when he is finally given a bronze plaque. Get him now!
