Signed Baseball Arnold Jigger Statz Bill Sweeney 1940s? Los Angeles Angels:
$39

A great signed baseball dating, I believe, to around 1942. The ball is signed by Arnold 'Jigger' Statz and Bill Sweeney, who were both major league players in their careers. The only time I can find the two of them associated with the same team at the same time is in 1942, when Arnold Statz was the LA Angels player manager, and Bill Sweeney was the coach. My assumption is that this is when the ball was signed.


As well as age related toning, there are scuffs and marks where it has been used. Some may clean up if you are careful. I've chosen to leave it as is, to avoid risk to the signatures.


Arnold Statz (1897-1988)

Played Major League Baseball as an outfielder from 1919-1928, playing for the Chicago Cubs, New York Giants, Boston Red Sox and the Brooklyn Robins. He then went on to have a lengthy Minor League career, playing 18 seasons for the Los Angeles Angels. He ended up one of only eight people who amassed 4,000 combined hits in both leagues. He was player-manager of the Angels between 1940-42


Bill Sweeney (1904-1957)

Played Major League Baseball first baseman for three seasons (1928-1931), playing for the Detroit Tigers and the Chicago Cubs. He is better known as a manager in the Pacific Coast League, including for the LA Angels, where he was promoted from coach to manager when Arnold Statz left


Both players are in the Pacific Coast League Hall of Fame
