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 and what he have offered here is one of the earliest, if not the earliest known Michael Jordan signature. This offered Little League Horsehide Cover stamped baseball was signed in 1976 when Jordan was playing in a Babe Ruth League in Wilmington, North Carolina for Parkers Food Store. Jordan, along with the rest of his teammates, signed this ball to his coach Richard Neher. Jordan’s name was printed by him under the coach’s name in blue pen on a side panel. Handwritten in black pen upside down to Jordan’s signature reads “Pam Beasley 1976 Won 11 Lost 3”. An additional “1976 CHAMPS” is penned in black pen on another side panel. Other names on this ball include David Price, Terry Allen, Anthony Hartwick, Floyd Curnie, Richard J Lanerster, Chris Bennett, Ronald Bradshaw, David Bridges, Richard Lancaster, Steve Neher, Scott Kendall, Jimmy Rivenbark and Johnie Parker. A great piece of early Michael Jordan history and this comes with a LOA from coach Richard Neher and a LOAs from PSA/DNA and JSA, along with the little league roster and a photograph of Jordan's Babe Ruth baseball team coached by Neher.
