Presented is a lot of ten (10) Frank Robinson single-signed baseballs. Robinson in 1989 became the first African American manager in Major League baseball history when he took the reins of the Cleveland Indians as a player-manager. Robinson was a Hall of Fame outfielder/first baseman who played 21 Major League seasons, bashing 586 home runs, and getting 2,943 hits, for a .294 career average. Robinson became the first player to win a Most Valuable Player Award in both leagues: In 1961 for the Cincinnati Reds, when he hit 37 home runs, drove in 124 runs and batted .323, and in 1966 for the Baltimore Orioles, when he won the American League Triple Crown, with 47 home runs, 122 RBIs, and a .316 batting average. Robinson has signed each of the ten Rawlings RO-N Official National League (Giamatti) Balls on the sweet spot in blue ink from a ballpoint pen. Eight of the signatures have bleeding; two do not show bleeding and are nice signatures.
