It's been more than seventy years since Jackie Robinson kicked baseball's color line to the curb, paving the way for generations of talents, who have enhanced the game in immeasurable ways. Recall some before and after legends with this Negro Leaguer single-signed baseball lot of (7). All but one of these supremely talented stars are now enshrined in the Hall of Fame, and while some never got a chance to shine on MLB diamonds, Willie Mays, Ernie Banks and Monte Irvin did, and what an impact they made.
Signature strength ranges admirably as ("7" to "9") and the balls are equally pleasing, with a condition average of (NM to NM-MT). Featured signers are: Willie Mays (HOF) on an ONL/White ball; Ernie Banks (HOF, d.2016) ONL/Giamatti ball; James "Cool Papa" Bell (HOF, d.1991) OAL/Brown ball; Ray Dandridge (HOF, d.1994) ONL/Giamatti ball; Monte Irvin (HOF, d.2016) ONL/Giamatti ball; "Buck" Leonard (HOF, d.1997) OAL/Brown ball; and "Buck" O'Neil (d.2006).
