Jim Hegan was one of the best defensive catchers of his era. He played for the 1948 World Champion Indians and coached the 1961 World Champion Yankees. He was a 5-time All-Star, a 3-time World Champion, and is a member of the Cleveland Indians Hall of Fame. Passing in 1984 before the modern signings, he is one of the rarest single-signed 1961 Yankees baseballs to find. Offered here is an exceptional PSA/DNA graded 8.5. This vintage Spalding American League (MacPhail) baseball has been hand signed by Jim Hegan. The autograph is guaranteed authentic, and includes authentication from PSA/DNA, as well as a Letter of Authenticity from James Spence Authentication.
Note: This item does not include an individually numbered TRISTAR Authentication hologram, only the PSA/DNA and JSA authentication.
