Description: Scarce Chief Bender single signed baseball attributed to Game #3 of the 1911 World Series. Lightly toned B.Johnson AL baseball signed on a side panel in black fountain pen, "C.A. Bender 1911 World's Series With Giants 3-2". Signature and salutation rate 7/8 out of 10. The ball exhibits evident game use including some surface abrasions to the side panels. Based on the notation of a "3-2" score, the offered ball was likely used during Game #3 of the 1911 World Series in which the A's defeated the Giants, and their pitcher Christy Mathewson, behind Frank Baker's second home run of the World Series.
