It is the sport that pulled Michael Jordan away from basketball. America’s pastime baseball was always a part of the great Michael Jordan’s sporting legacy. Already a superstar basketball player in high school, Jordan was an excellent baseball player, so much so, his father – the late James Jordan hoped his son would become a professional baseballer. Like many young boys in the mid-1970’s, Michael Jordan played baseball during the summer.

This offered Babe Ruth League Baseball stamped baseball was signed in 1977 when Jordan was playing in a Babe Ruth League in Wilmington, North Carolina for Parkers Food Store under coach Dick Neher. Jordan, along with the rest of his teammates, signed this ball. Jordan’s signature appears on the side panel and it was signed “Mike Jordan” in black pen with “Rabbit” inscribed above. Jordan’s last name has been traced over in red ink. The names Floyd, Flea, Curric, Squeaky and Jimmy Rivenbank appear on the panel with the Wilson stamp, while the sweet spot has Richard Lancaster and Ronald Bradshaw. Another panel has “SKOSH” David Burgess and “DINK” STEVE NEHER” and another panel has Troy Croom, Chris Bonnett, Terry Allen, Soulman and Jim “Stubby” Knight. “1977 LEAGUE CHAMPS 14-0” is handwritten in black that runs along the stamped sweet spot and along the laces into the adjacent panel. This ball comes with a LOA from PSA/DNA (B22024) and a LOA from Jordan’s Babe Ruth League Parker Food Stores coach Dick Neher.
