The presented Truman single stands among the finest known, and just the second specimen we have personally encountered that dates to the period of his White House residence. The original owner reports that his great-grandfather identified this Official American League (Harridge) ball as the one that our nation's thirty-third President tossed as the first pitch of the 1947 Washington Senators home opener, a game that saw the eventual World Champion New York Yankees stifle their hosts in a seven-to-zero final. President Truman's own hand dates the ball "4-18-47, " the date that he threw the first pitch. The start of the 1947 season naturally brings to mind the debut of Jackie Robinson, which occurred just three days before the date applied to this septuagenarian sphere, and any Major League Baseball relics bearing that vintage carry special significance.
