The 62nd MLB All-Star Game is spotlighted, with this multi-signed bat and baseball pairing. Toronto's SkyDome was the setting for this 7/9/91 Midsummer Classic, which saw the AL come out on top by a score of 4-2. Oakland A's skipper Tony LaRussa filled out the "Junior Circuit" lineup card, Baltimore Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr. earned the game's MVP award with a home run, and A's closer Dennis Eckersley's save nailed down the win for Toronto Blue Jays ace Jimmy Key. These standouts and many other players and coaches have contributed autographs to this duo of main stage event souvenirs. Auction LOA from JSA.
