Hall of Fame Signed Baseball - Ron Santo
Santo (b. 1940 - d. 2010) played in the majors from 1960 to 1974 for the Cubs and White Sox. He was Chicago through and through, following up his playing career with a longtime place in the Cubs' broadcast booth.
In his playing career, he had 2,254 hits, 342 home runs and a .277 batting average. He was on 9 All Star teams and finished as high as 4th in the NL MVP voting (1967).
Santo was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2012 (posthumously) by the Veterans Committee. He probably should have been elected a long time ago, especially since he passed away due to diabetes complications in 2010.
Santo is the 121st Hall of Fame signed baseball in my collection. Hopefully, based on the voting results to be announced Wednesday, I will be able to count ball number 122 soon!
Thank you for the Christmas money, Grandma!
