I posted this ball on my other (now dormant) blog way back on May 27, 2010. I picked the ball up from Ebay after I got word that I passed the first half of my geology licensing exam. Since I am really going hard after Hall of Fame autographed baseballs, I was really happy to add this Rizzuto to my collection. I feel like it got missed by everyone because the other blog didn't take off like I wanted it to. Oh well. Here it is now!
This Rizzuto baseball was the first signed ball I had gotten of a deceased Hall of Famer (I now have Feller, Kell and Snider) and I was surprised at how cheap I was able to get it, especially since he is a Yankee. The ball looks great in person and his signature definitely looks unique, the Z's definitely don't look like R's. Rirruto?
What do you guys think? Anyone get the movie reference?
