Rawlings Official American League baseball. Hand-signed by Kirby Puckett (D. 2006, Minnesota Twins, HOF).

Kirby Puckett spent his entire 12-year career playing for the Minnesota Twins (1984-1995). He is the Twins' all-time leader in career hits, runs, doubles, and total bases. At the time of his retirement, his .318 career batting average was the highest by any right-handed American League batter since Joe DiMaggio.

Puckett was the fourth baseball player during the 20th century to record 1,000 hits in his first five full calendar years in Major League Baseball, and was the second to record 2,000 hits during his first ten full calendar years. After being forced to retire at age 35 due to loss of vision in one eye from acentral retinal vein occlusion, Puckett was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001, his first year of eligibility.

The lot / autograph(s) includes an official Beckett Authentication Services hologram and matching LOA for authenticity purposes.
