Description

Bonus baby Frank Leja (d.1991) was literally a one-hit wonder who went 1-23 for a .043 career batting average in the majors. He did show some pop once the Yankees sent him to the minors following the two obligatory seasons he spent riding the pine in the bigs, but cracking the very formidable Yankees line-up of the late '50s was a task beyond his ability.

 

Die-hard Yankees fans and consumate completists battle it out for this rare single-signed baseball. Offered is a Wilson "Official Professional League" ball (EX-MT) with an ("8") strength Leja autograph on the sweet spot. Offered well below the asking price for the very few other Leja S-S examples currently available, this tough keepsake is worthy of serious consideration. Auction LOA from JSA.
