About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Today's Top 5

Not as rare as I thought.

I too have an authentic Kofax signed baseball,(purchased in Cooperstown for $375) as I was told that Koxfax didn't sign many balls until quite recently,when he needed to try and recover some of the money he lost investing with Madoff.

Best. Lefty. Ever.

For 5 or 6 years in the early-mid 60's, he was just flat unhittable.

more than one

Sandy Koufax was know to have signed 5,320 baseballs in his life. 10,732 are still known to exist.


The dealer said he was selling me the only one!
