Official Major League (Selig) baseball signed by Pope Benedict XVI (1927-2022). Pope Benedict has scripted his name in black marker across the sweet spot, with the signature grading 8/10 overall. Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger was the Cardinal Bishop of Ostia and the Dean of the College of Cardinals when he was elected to the Papacy in 2005. In 2013 he made history when he resigned his position, becoming the first Pope to resign since Pope Gregory XII in 1415. The ball displays a few scattered age spots and is otherwise in Near Mint condition. Full LOA from JSA.
