Rare Harry Heilman & Birdie Tebetts Signed Wilson Baseball PSA Full Letter No. B92475
Hall of Famer Harry Heilmann, the great Detroit Tigers star who retired with a .342 lifetime BA, died young in 1951, offered his markings to some awe struck fan. His autograph in this format is, in a word, RARE. Harry provided a lone signature on the west panel - and a fine gift to future collectors who may not wish to ante up the many thousands of dollars a Heilmann single-signed ball commands. Aged with time, the ink is light but Heilmann's name can still be deciphered.
With its vintagedark toning, the ball exhibits some blemishes with a scratch mark alongs it leather surface. But none of these attributes affect the display value.
Only one other signature graces this Wilson baseball, Birdie Tebbetts. Perhaps most revealing of Tebbetts's character is his recollection of an umpire who suffered dizzy spells following his return from the war. Afraid of losing his job, the umpire asked Tebbetts, then the Tigers catcher, to help calling balls and strikes, and Tebbetts tipped him off with hand signals following each pitch.
Certainly, this sphere will enhance any baseball collection.
