SIGNING RESULTS: 1962 NL MVP, Dodgers Great Mr. Maury Wills!!
Wow, this former player has been on my ‘want list’ for years.
And after having a few shots to get him and missing out on the opportunity, I finally jumped in with both feet and registered myself and my blank baseball for a private signing event with the former NL MVP.
And the results are perfect.
Have a look:
He’s got a pretty neat looking signature, doesn’t he?!?!
I’m digging it, and the added #30 and MVP NL ’62 inscription as well.
Maury Wills is the man. He is a former league MVP, stolen base champ, 5-time All-Star, 2-time Gold Glove Winner, and 3-time World Series Champion!
Before Rickey Henderson, there was Lou Brock. And before there was Lou Brock, it was Maury Wills! He was an offensive machine, a true spark-plug for the Dodgers franchise – a career .281 hitter with an on-base percentage of .330. Wills has 2,134 career hits with 586 stolen bases and 1,067 runs scored in 1,942 games played.
This is an autograph that I am super excited to have in my collection. And it will rest with some of my other Dodgers’ balls – Duke Snider, Kirk Gibson, and Orel Hershiser.
