Description



Quiet by nature, Hall of Fame second baseman Charlie Gehringer let his .320 lifetime batting average do the talking. Once asked why he signed his name “Chas” instead of “Charlie,” the Michigan native replied: “Why use seven letters when four will do?” That’s precisely what appears on this baseball autographed by the Tiger legend. Manufactured by Philadelphia’s famed “Reach” plant, this Mickey Cochrane Amateur Ball is signed “Chas. Gehringer” on the sweet spot. Executed in steel tip fountain pen, the penmanship is so graceful, it appears as though it was done mechanically (no pun intended). But make no mistake, this is an actual signature. With surface abrasions minimally affecting the surname, the autograph still maintains (“6-7”) potency. Comes with a full photo LOA form JSA.
