One of just a handful of authentically signed baseballs known to exist from the famed "Black Sox" slugger, this Reach official American League specimen showcases in the ideal manner as a single signed specimen. Other signatures from the 1938 Detroit Tigers are present on panels away from Jackson's coveted signature, and those signatures include Rudy York, Elden Auker, Tom Bridges and Ron Ross. As the photos show, the signatures of the other signers are very faint, thus reinforcing the single signed visual appeal of this coveted sphere.

As shown in the photos, this baseball showcases a rich brown patina and heavy scuffing, leading one to believe that it may possibly been used in play during the time period it was signed. Jackson's signature has held up quite well over the test of time, and is beautifully placed along the side panel.

While names like Ruth and Cobb are certainly desirable on signed baseballs, it is almost universally known among well-heeled collectors that Joe Jackson is the "Holy Grail" of baseball collecting. The market has often gone years without seeing a single example appear. If you are a collector looking for the pinnacle piece to your baseball collection, you have arrived at your desitination.

Accompanying by an industry consensus of authentication in the form of Letters of Authenticity from Beckett Authentication Services (BAS) and James Spence Authentication (JSA).
