The Bucs' 1956 season was notable for Bobby Bragan's debut at the helm, Dale Long's record-setting home run streak, and 19-year-old Bill Mazeroski's rookie campaign. Sophomore Roberto Clemente also batted .300 for the first time. This creamy-toned ONL (Giles) ball features 24 mostly "7-8" signatures, with a faded Clemente.
