Bobby Orr
8. Bobby Orr

1966 G. Sosnak St. Louis Cardinals Ball
13. 1966 G. Sosnak St. Louis Cardinals Ball  
George Sosnak began his career in baseball as an umpire of military games in Germany after the Second World War, later attending umpiring school in Florida where he called balls and strikes at Detroit Tigers Spring Training games. It was around this time that Sosnak began to develop his distinctive folk art style, characterized by charmingly crude figures and painstakingly rendered text and statistics applied with almost mathematical precision.

This hand painted baseball by Sosnak celebrates the 1966 St. Louis Cardinals baseball club with team logo imagery and artwork of the team's biggest star, Bob Gibson. This ball has been signed in pencil by Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, Orlando Cepeda, Red Schoendienst, Curt Flood and many others. Sosnak dedicated this ball to Winn Sosnak on the sweet spot.
