  • unidentified ball 1972-1973

    A guy cleaning my ducts found this ball signed 1972 1973
    Any idea whose autograph that is?

    Is the Ball an Official American or National League ball? Actually now that
    I look at the pics a little closer. The ball does not look like an Official Ball.
    Where are you located? The reason I ask, If you live in a city with a
    Major or Minor League team. You can try to narrow it down to players on
    the teams roster for 1972. It looks like Bud or Bill somthing.
    Good Luck

        If I'm not mistaken, the Oakland A's won the WS in 1972-73, so it could be someone from that team.

          I checked the A's roster. Nobody even close. You sure that says "World Series?" It doesn't look to me like it says "World."

            It could be a coach. Anyone know of a site that lists coaching staff instead of just the player roster?

              Bill Posedel ??

              Could it be Bill Posedel, who was the pitching coach? for the A's back then.

                It probably is Bill Posedel, looking at the signature. I didn't know he was an A's coach. But after looking him up, there's seems to be one odd thing...he wasn't the A's pitching coach in 1973. He retired after 1972. Perhaps he had another job in the organization?
