Advance autograph collectors make a nice catch with this lot of (4) items signed by Carl Furillo and Billy Martin. Playing second fiddle to the likes of Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Roy Campanella and Jackie Robinson, Furillo and Martin were always steady contributors that helped their teams to multiple championships. Both of these very solid ballplayers died in 1989, when paid autograph lines were still a relatively new thing. The fact that thirty years has passed since these fan favorites were available to provide autographs, puts existing examples in high demand.
Highlighting this quartet of signatures are (2) single-signed and certified baseballs, with: Carl Furillo ("8") on an ONL/Giamatti ball (EX) with PSA/DNA basic cert/sticker; and Billy Martin ("8") on an OAL/MacPhail ball (EX-MT+) with PSA/DNA sticker only.
Also present are (2) single-signed flats with auction LOA from JSA, with: Furillo signed ("9") 8x10 photo (NM); and Martin signed ("9-10") 1986 TCMA "Robert Stephen Simon's Super Star Card Set" card #17 (NM-MT).
