Coming off a franchise-best 17 successive winning seasons, the 1968 Chicago White Sox began the season with 10 straight setbacks and never recovered, losing 11 times in “walk-off” fashion en route to the club’s first losing campaign since 1950. This baseball is autographed by (26) members of that year’s South Side roster. The clean and creamy OAL Cronin orb (grade “9”) is an absolutely gorgeous medium! The blue ballpoint pennings, meanwhile, average (“8”) potency. Includes: Sweet Spot: Lopez (manager; clubhouse); North Panel: Gutteridge (coach), Fisher, Held, Ribant, Rath, Nyman, Priddy and Horlen; South Panel: Aparicio, Locker, Josephson (d.1997), McNertney, Wagner and Wood; West Panel: Alomar, Farrell (coach, d.1975), Bradford, Wilhelm, Williams and Carlos; East Panel: Hansen, Peters, Ward, Davis and Berres (coach). Note: the sweet spot is home to a personalization in an unknown hand while, on the east panel, an inscription reads “5/9/68” (the White Sox defeated the Oakland A’s that day). Auction LOA from JSA.
