(LOT 21)
Branch Rickey High Grade Single Signed Baseball (Broke MLB Color Barrier With Jackie Robinson) PSA 8 NM-MT

This Branch Rickey Single Signed Rawlings Official Little League Baseball could be the highest or near the highest graded baseball ever coming to market. This fresh to the hobby sphere has been signed by Rickey on the sweet spot which is extremely rare. Back when kids would collect autographs on baseballs, trying to fill the ball up with as many signatures as possible. No one would ever stop at just one signature on a baseball. So, to find a baseball just signed by Baseball Hall Of Famer Branch Rickey is a gargantuan feat in its own.

Branch Rickey was a baseball player and sports executive. Rickey was instrumental in breaking Major League Baseball's color barrier by signing black player Jackie Robinson. He also created the framework for the modern minor league farm system, encouraged the Major Leagues to add new teams through his involvement in the proposed Continental League, and introduced the batting helmet. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1967, two years after his death. This is one rare single signed baseball you don't want to miss. Comes with LOA from PSA/DNA Graded a PSA 8 NM-MT as well as the original box.
