Offered is a Reggie Jackson signed and inscribed baseball that he hit for career home run number 426 and presented to the late California Angels owner Gene Autry. Jackson hit career homer 426 on April 27, 1982 (in his first season with the Angels) off New York Yankees pitcher Ron Guidry in the top of the 7th inning at Yankee Stadium. The Hall of Fame slugger has signed his name in blue pen on the sweet spot of the game-used baseball, and inscribed “44” below his signature. Above the sweet spot, Jackson has inscribed “To Mr. Autry (“The Cowboy”) Home Run #1 1982 April 27 -1982 Ron Guidry Career #426 1st Angel H.R. 1st Return to Yankee Stadium Angels 3 Yanks 1 Thankx” also in blue pen. Autry owned the Angels from its 1961 debut to his death in 1998. The team, initially called the Los Angeles Angels upon its 1961 debut, moved to suburban Anaheim in 1966, and was renamed the California Angels, then the Anaheim Angels from 1997 until 2005, when it became the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Autry served as vice president of the American League from 1983 until his death. In 1995, he sold a quarter share of the team to the Walt Disney Company and a controlling interest the following year, with the remaining share to be transferred after his death. This item comes with a LOA from his widow, Jacqueline Autry, as well as a LOA from Steve Grad of Beckett Authentication (A25395).
