The Only Known Ernie Davis Single Signed Baseball. He was the first African-American recipient of the Heisman Trophy (1961) and the only man in NFL history to have his jersey number retired (Cleveland Browns) despite never playing a single down on the professional gridiron. Davis' tragic, early death in 1963 has made his autograph one of the most difficult of post-war sports, and here we find the most uncommon variation thereof, the only single signed baseball known to exist.


His appearance on horsehide isn't entirely shocking, however, as Davis excelled at the sport before turning his sole focus to football. Along with his bold sweet spot signature, Davis notates the provided game used sphere with the following text: "7/9, 1957, Davis HR, 2 Doubles, Pioneers - 11, South Side - 6." The victorious team was the Elmira Pioneers, a minor league affiliate of the Washington Senators headquartered in Davis' New York State hometown. A letter of provenance from Davis' mother is included. Full LOA from JSA James Spence Authentication. Letter of provenance from mother of Ernie Davis.
