Negating their dreadful 9-24 start, the 1965 Pittsburgh Pirates played at a torrid clip the remainder of the season, lurking as close as within 2-1/2 games in early September. This ONL Giles ball is signed by (28) members of that years resilient Bucs roster. The orb shows signs of game use and features blue ballpoint pennings that average (5) strength and clarity (with a few nicer). Keys include: Clemente (4), Face (5), Law (5-6), H. Smith (6) and Stargell (5). Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
