Other than a couple of bone-headed trades by the eccentric Charles Finley, the 1963 Baseball Winter Meetings went off without a hitch. This multi-signed baseball from that conference exhibits (25) signatures from a variety of Hall of Famers, retired stars and pioneering executives. The blue and black signatures are penned on an Official International League Mac Gregor baseball ("7"). The autographs primarily grade in the ("7"-8") range or better. Included are Sweet Spot: Alston (d.1984), Mostil (d.1970), Berra; West Panel: Bragan, Haney (d.1977), Dressen (d.1966), Lopat (d.1992); East Panel: Murtaugh (d.1975), Cronin (d.1984), Hodges (d.1972); North Panel: Bush (d.1972), Thurston (d.1973), Stengel (d.1975), Musial, Harridge (d.1971), unidentified; South Panel: Kennedy (d.2005), unidentified, Lopez (d.2005), Fr.
