Small in stature at 5-foot-9, 170 pounds, Mel Ott belied his physical status and unorthodox batting style, becoming the first National League player to reach the 500 home run plateau. This baseball is autographed by the six-time N.L. circuit clout champ. The ONL Frick orb dates to 1941-1946 and shows evidence of excessive diamond use. On a side panel, Ott (d.1958) has signed in black-ink steel tip fountain pen. Among the boldest and toughest 500 Home Run Club signatures, this one projects (“8”) strength and clarity, with minor surface abrasions preventing even higher assessment. For the sake of accuracy, we note that while this presents as a single-signed keepsake, there are (2) signature removals. Full photo LOA from JSA.
