Description:

JOE MEDWICK'S 18TH HOME RUN BASEBALL OF 1938
This ONL Frick ball was hit at Shibe Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during a 12 - 9 win for the St. Louis Cardinals over the Philadelphia Phillies on September 14, 1938. The ball has been penned in period dark black with the score, the battery of "Passeau --- Davis" as the pitcher and catcher the ball was hit off, as well as "Macon --- Bremer" as the pitcher and catcher for the St Louis Cardinals with the score written above, and "Our Joe's Home Run Ball No. 18 - Left Field Seats" just off of the Spalding logo, with "SHIBE PARK PHILA - Sept 14th, 38" on the sweet spot.

This great St. Louis Baseball Cardinal slugger is still to date the last National League baseball player to hit for the Triple Crown in 1937. Medwick was active in Major League Baseball from 1932-1948.
