During a period when he worked two World Series events (1934-1939), Hall of Fame arbiter Bill McGowan (d.1954) autographed this OAL Harridge baseball. The sphere features legible stampings, some of which are prominent, and presents at the (VG) level (though period shellac applied to the signatures warrants only a slightly lesser technical assessment). On the side of the sweet spot, McGowan's blue fountain pen signature resonates ("7") quality. The ball is also home to (5) clubhouse signatures that are also penned in McGowan's hand as it was common practice during that era to have umpires or other personnel sign the names of many players.
