BOBBY RICHARDSON - BASEBALL SIGNED - DOCUMENT 283602
Baseball signed by 1960 World Series MVP Bobby Richardson
Baseball signed "Bobby Richardson" in blue ink. 2½-inch diameter. Rawlings Official American League ball with Bobby Brown signature. Respected as a competitor and as a clean-living, God-fearing gentleman, Richardson, born Robert Clinton Richardson in 1935, played a solid second base on seven Yankee pennant-winners. He had great range and was particularly adept at turning the double play. He won five consecutive Gold Gloves (1961-65). Though Richardson hit .301 in 1959, the singles hitter was not usually one of the Yankees' major offensive threats. An exception was his sensational performance in the 1960 World Series, which won him Series MVP honors (even though he was a member of the losing roster, the Yanks). He batted .367 with 11 hits, a grand slam, and eight runs scored during that series and set World Series records with 12 total RBIs and six RBIs in Game Three. Lightly toned, soiled and dented. Otherwise in fine condition.
