A third panel has Smoky Burgess, Nellie King, Don Blasingame (St. Louis), Bob Porterfield and Harry Bright. The Burgess and King autographs are ex-m to ex-m to nm, while the others are generally ex or vg-ex to ex. Finally, Orlando Cepeda’s autograph is nm on a panel with Geo Witt (nm 7 to nm-m 8) and a clubhouse signature of Dick Stuart. This ball is accompanied by another ONL Giles ball that has on a panel the date of the game and “Pirates – St. Louis.” This ball is vg. The autographed ball is ex-m. Authentication by Kevin Keating.
