Local Cleveland Indians autographed baseball haul......plus a bonus!
In the beginning of January I met up with a local dealer who had fallen on tough times and was just looking to unload a lot of Cleveland Indians autographed baseballs. I planned on picking up a few....but naturally the deal escalated!
I ended up adding 40 balls to my Indians collection in the deal which worked out to around $8/ball. Not all of the balls are ROMLB and a few have some staining. But overall, I was (and still am) really pleased with the haul!
Also included was a Sam Jethroe autographed baseball! He played in the negro leagues and won ROY with the Boston Braves in 1950.

Very nice! I wish I could land a deal like that. My new venture from here on out is collecting memorabilia. No more cards(I think )
All I can say is wow. You got a hell of a deal!
That's Jacque Jones, not Tony Pena, in the last picture.
dscards: Nice catch and thanks for the info! A few of the cases were labeled incorrectly and I definitely overlooked that one.
