Not long for the Nation’s Capital, 1959 Washington Senators hovered near the .500 mark in mid-July until an 18-game losing streak ensured a third straight last-place finish. Among the bright spots was “Bonus Baby” Harmon Killebrew, who paced the circuit with 42 homers and decorated the sweet spot of this team-signed ball with one of (30) potent autographs. The creamy OAL Harridge orb (grade “8”) is home to ballpoint pennings that average (“8”) quality with additional keys including: Allison, Kaat and Sievers. Full photo LOA from JSA.
