Description: "1937 All-Star Game" baseball attributed to use by Lefty Gomez and signed by George Barr. Well used/soiled baseball having faint vestiges of period appropriate William Harridge Official American League markings. Notated on the side panel in period ink (unknown hand), "From 1937 All Star Game Played at Washington D.C. - Game Won By Americans 8-3, This Ball Pitched by Gomez 7/7/37." Opposite panel has been signed "Geo. Barr" in fountain pen rating 8 to 9 out of 10. Ball displays appropriate use/wear with a small scuff and half dollar sized area of discoloration which is likely the result of prior mounting/display. The 1937 event was held at Griffith Stadium with President Roosevelt throwing out the first pitch and Gomez starting for the American League. Umpire George Barr was on field at third base. Includes auction LOA from JSA: Ball VG-EX, Sig. EX/MT-NM
