Auction: 1959 White Sox team-signed baseball.

9

An OAL (Harridge) baseball, signed by the entire pennant-winning 1959 Chicago White Sox team. This is one of only two teams (the other being the '54 Indians, also managed by Al Lopez) to interrupt the Yankees string of pennants from 1949 to 1964. This team contained five future HOFers, manager Lopez, shortstop Luis Aparicio, second baseman Nellie Fox, pitcher Early Wynn, and, briefly, Larry Doby. All of the above have signed except Doby (Fox signed as 'Nelson'); other signers include: Norm Cash, Ted Kluszewski, Sherm Lollar, Bubba Phillips, Ken McBride, Sam Esposito, Billy Pierce, Earl Torgeson, Barry Latman, Rudy Arias, Johnny Romano, Earl Battey, Jim McAnny, Jerry Staley, Bill Goodman, Bob Shaw, Al Smith, Turk Lown, Ray Moore, and coaches Ray Barnes, Tony Cuccinello, John Looney and Don Gutteridge. Lopez and Looney share the sweet-spot. Aparicio has signed over Harridge's stamp (very light). For some reason, Minnie Minoso (who was actually not with the '59 team but re-joined them in 1960) has signed this baseball THREE times. Some signatures in different pen (notably Wynn and Lown), indicating a later signature; most autographs in black ballpoint. Signatures rate about a five or six. (2008 PSA/DNA COA)
