This ball was autographed by the 1979 Chicago Cubs team. The ball was given to me by the Cubs slugger Dave Kingman, after I gave him a baseball that I caught that he hit for a grand slam. In return Kingman gave me this baseball, one of his bats which he signed, and the cap off his head on the last day of the 1979 season. There were not many star players on the team this year. Most noteworthy are Dave Kingman, Bruce Sutter, Jerry Martin, Barry Foote, and Ted Sizemore. I'm still waiting for the World Series to be played at Wrigley Field.

    I remember the '79 team. As to your last sentence: You and me both, stepback. As die-hard Cub fans, we must have patience and true grit. Do you think it will happen in our lifetime?

    Marcobabe13, now that we have new management with a proven track record, it just may happen.

    Great item. Being raised in the Chicago area, I have always had a soft spot for the Cubs. Are you holding your breath for that World Series???
