The Pittsburgh Gentleman

“There’ll Never Be Another One Like It”
by John Kirwan Jr.

In 1946, John Kirwan Jr. began collecting autographed baseballs. Over decades that followed, Kirwan amassed 1,000 baseballs and 19,397 autographs dating to 1925. In The Pittsburgh Gentleman, he recounts stories of obtaining the balls and their eventual sale at Christie’s auction house, where enthusiasts first learned of the unprecedented collection. According to those who witnessed the sale, “There’ll never be another one like it.”
