In the year 2000, The Sporting News selected the 50 Greatest Sluggers of all-time. The list started with the Sultan of Swat - Babe Ruth - and ended with Fred McGriff. Some of the players who made the list did it with consistency like Hank Aaron and Stan Musial while others did it with brute strength like Frank Howard and Mickey Mantle. These men are the ones who captivated fans across the country with their ability to put the ball over the wall and, sometimes, they put it way over the wall. They were also the players that pitchers feared most, men who could change the game with one swing. Here, they are part of a very collectable autograph set, one that is diverse and spans several decades of power hitting.

Notes: All balls autographed on the "sweet spot" receive 1 bonus point.
In order for a single-signed graded baseball to qualify for the Single-Signed Baseball categories, the item must have undergone the full, Autographed Baseball Grading service, which assigns individual grades for the autograph and baseball along with an overall grade. If the baseball was submitted under the general Autograph Grading service, which only assigns a grade to the autograph, please be advised that it is only eligible for the Any Medium categories.
