To understand all the ups and downs of Nate Andrews' journeyman career, it's best to read David Skelton's superb SABR biography. For our purposes here, the essential information is that these annotated game balls hail from Andrews' playing time with the International League's Syracuse Chiefs and American Association's Columbus Red Birds. The provenance is 6 individual LOAs from the Andrews family, reading, "I, Steven Todd Poteat, am the grandson of former Major League Baseball player Nate Andrews. Nate Andrews played in the MLB and MiLB between 1937-1946 for the St. Louis Cardinals, Cleveland Indians, Boston Braves, Cincinnati Reds and New York Giants. This Syracuse Chiefs/Columbus Red Birds Game-Used Baseball was obtained by my grandfather during his career with the Syracuse Chiefs/Columbus Red Birds. It was passed down to me and it has been in my possession since that time." Heavy soiling, toning and scuffing throughout.
