        Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu (Mother Theresa) was a member of the 1928 Macedonia Mud Hens. She played the outfield and pitched a little in relief. Her nickname was "Bojax", and she lead the league in sacrifices.

            As taken from: http://www.cosmicbaseball.com/mteresa01.html

            "In April 2000 (nearly three years after her mortal death) a dozen baseballs were confiscated in San Diego, California during a United States government sting operation that busted counterfeiters trafficking in the collectibles and memorabilia business. What made these particular twelve baseballs unusual is that they appeared to have been signed by Mother Teresa.

            Aside from her involvement in cosmic baseball we know of no direct interaction Mother Teresa ever had with the great game of the quadrature. It is possible she saw a baseball game, but doubtful. The signature on the seized baseballs, of course, is fake.

            The fake Mother Teresa balls are now in the possession of the Baseball Reliquary, an historical organization in California which plans to use them for "exhibition purposes in order to alert consumers to the large amount of inauthentic memorabilia in the market place."

              Not sure how many of you have seen this item, but it actually was issued in a Topps product in '07:

                That was a disgusting card, because it cut off part of her signature and the "God bless you" inscription. Topps should have either tried to find a signature that would fit the size of the card they decided to create, or not issue one at all.

                (N.B.: I don't have a problem with Topps issuing a Mother Teresa cut signature card, it's the finished product that I don't like. Actually, I'd prefer they don't use cut signatures at all, unless the item is so damaged and unpresentable otherwise. And even then... there was a thread where someone had talked about acquired a defective Charles Ebbets letter he was going to use to create his own cut signature card, but other posters dissuaded him from doing so.)

                  I'm not a huge fan of the cut memorabilia cards in general. Why destroy a jersey? Why cut up a letter signed by Babe Ruth?

                  That being said, I do have my eyes peeled for a Walt Judnich cut sig.

                    I second that. I'm not a fan of cut signature cards. That was probably a very nice document they cut up to make a 1/1. When the signature is cut from a letter, it's truly a shame, but when it's cut off of a check, I think that's even worse. I really wish the card companies wouldn't destroy documents to produce these cards.

                      Is there any other kind of death? I know that's not your fault AC, but that is one poorly written sentence.
