This baseball was signed by Johnnie B. Baker Jr., better known as Dusty Baker. Above the signature is the San Francisco Giants logo. After the signature it is dated '97 (1997).
Dusty Baker was a manager and former player. He is currently the manager of the Washington Nationals baseball team. He had a 19 year career as an outfield player, mostly with the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers. He then had a 20 year career as a manager with the San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, and now the Washington Nationals.
The ball has resided in a protective acrylic display case.
I purchased the ball at an estate sale. There was no COA included. I've spend several hours online comparing the signature on this baseball with many other signings and I am confident that it is authentic. In setting a price on this ball, I've adjusted the price (compared to other online listing) to reflect the lack of a COA.
It will be mailed from Arizona via the USPS. Mailing will include insurance and a signature will be required at the time of delivery. Since those protections are for the benefit of us both, I split the costs with the buyer.
Buyer to pay $7.80 delivery charges.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased at long as all items can safely fit in to a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding more than a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
