In the throes of an 85-year curse cast upon their ill-advised sale of Babe Ruth, the 1955 Boston Red Sox struggled to a fourth-place finish despite logging a league-best team on-base percentage (.351). This souvenir baseball is autographed by (24) members of that BoSox roster. The mildly toned orb features a team logo and ballpoint pennings that average (6) quality. Highlights include: D. Baker (coach), Goodman, Higgins (manager), Jensen, Parnell, Piersall and T. Williams. Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
