Signing Results: 1988 Mr. Everything – Orel Hershiser
Taking way much longer than what I had expected, I signed up for a rare signing with Orel Hershiser that was supposed to occur late in the summer of 2010.
Hershiser is like an elusive animal – hard to catch, and oftentimes leaves you catching just a glimpse but never long enough to snap a picture.
So, I waited. And waited. And waited some more.
Through the end of the 2010 baseball season. And through a broken arm, rehab, and bad timing – I waited….
Well, the wait paid off, as it usually does, and now I have signed baseball number 45 in my collection.
And it is signed brilliantly by 1988’s Mr. Everything – Orel Hershiser. I opted for the 1988 NL CY inscription, and now that I see the ball, I wish that I went for a 1988 CY, NLCS MVP, WS MVP inscription.
But beggars cannot be chosers, and I am just thrilled to finally get this ball home. It had been a very long time, but the result is absolutely worth the wait.
See for yourself…
I told ya!!
Signed perfectly by one of the pitchers that captivated me during my youth, this baseball marks the entire 1988 baseball season for me. A season that I will never forget thanks to ‘The Bulldog’!!!
