Signature in black felt tip on a baseball
Baseball signed "Soupy/Sales" in black ink. With arrows in purple ink, drawn in unknown hand, pointing to Sales' signature. 2 ½-inch diameter. Champro Official League baseball. Actor/comedian Soupy Sales (1926-2009), born Milton Supman in Franklinton, North Carolina, hosted a number of TV series, including The Soupy Sales Show (also called Lunch With Soupy Sales; 1959-1962, 1976), and Sha Na Na (1978-1981). Sales, known for his wry humor and slapstick comedy, estimated that he had been hit with at least 25,000 pies (and threw a few of his own at "victims" that included Frank Sinatra). Sales appeared in a number of feature films and as a guest star on several TV variety shows and series. He was also a popular New York City radio personality in the early 1980s, where he had a well-publicized feud with Howard Stern, both of WABC. He's best known for his on-air antics, including a 1965 New Year's Day show where he encouraged children watching his show to mail the "funny green pieces of paper" in their parent's pants and pocketbooks to him in return for "a postcard from Puerto Rico!" and urban legends that he sneaked dirty jokes into his kid shows, a legend he vehemently denied. Lightly toned. Signature is lightly smeared. Adhesive residue and pinhead-sized stains on baseball, which touch arrows but not signature.
