The person that made this possible to be in The Collection of Raleigh DeGeer Amyx (a.k.a.) The American Heritage Collection, had close daily contact with the Oval Office. The Trio Baseball was presented to Mr. Amyx not long after this important 50th Anniversary meeting. The next day, The President awarded both Ted Williams and Joe Dimaggio, America's highest civilian honor - The Presidential Medal of Freedom. Soon this important piece of American and baseball history, may be made available to another noted collector - in that it has now been in The Collection of Raleigh DeGeer Amyx for two decades.
