Senior Circuit fans were seeing Red at the 1957 Mid-Summer Classic. In part, because of the Sportsman’s park venue and its Redbird tenants. But mostly because Cincinnati fans had stuffed the ballot boxes to elect no fewer than seven players to the starting lineup! This baseball is autographed by (28) participants from that memorable event. The clean and creamy orb (grade “8”) features blue ballpoint pennings (average “8-9” strength) with keys including: Aaron, Banks, Mathews, Mays, Musial and Spahn. Full photo LOA from JSA.
