A Look Inside the Museum

 1950 Trenton Giants Team Signed Ball

  

In an article that appeared in Sports Collectors Digest, Larry Canale reported that a baseball signed by the 1950 Trenton Giants team sold on E-Bay for $14,995.  No doubt this eye-popping figure was due to the fact that the ball included the signature of Willie Mays.  Mays had been signed by the Giants as a 19-year old and sent to Trenton to begin his legendary career.   On the above signed ball you can pick out Willie's signature.      Perhaps of more interest to the Delaware County Sports fan is the signature of Ace Bell on that same ball.  In 1950, the former Springfield High School baseball coach was a teammate of Mays.  Ace is better known in local circles as the coach of Mike Scioscia when the former Dodger all-star catcher and present LA Angels manager was a first-round draft pick as a high school player playing for Springfield High.
