Claiming world champion status for the first time in 23 years, the 1968 Detroit Tigers saw fit to autograph this OAL Cronin sphere. And while the occasion isnt crystal clear, the autographs of Dodgers skipper Walt Alston and since-retired southpaw Sandy Koufax are also present. The ball (grade 3-4) is affected by stains, and the blue ballpoint signatures average (5-6) potency. Key Tiger signatures include Cash, Kaline and Mathews.
