Autographed Patrick Mahomes Baseball From High School Discovered At Texas Thrift Store

A once-in-a-lifetime discovery was made at a Texas thrift store. Someone found a baseball autographed by Patrick Mahomes while he was still in high school in the Lone Star State. Now, the item is up for auction at Lelands.

The rare find happened at a thrift store in Rockwall, just outside of Dallas, last month, two days after the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers in a thrilling Super Bowl.

The ball, authenticated by PSA, is a team-signed baseball from the 2013–2014 Whitehouse Wildcats when Mahomes was a senior in high school. Mahomes ended up pitching a no-hitter that season, striking out 16 in the game.

Mahomes’ autograph is signed on the sweet spot of the Champro Official League baseball and inscribed with “#5.”

The Detroit Tigers selected Mahomes in the 37th round of the 2014 MLB Draft following his senior season at Whitehouse High School. Instead, Mahomes went to Texas Tech where he would go on to become one of the best quarterbacks in college football. In turn, the Chiefs took Mahomes 10th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. Over his first seven seasons, all Mahomes has done is win three Super Bowls, three Super Bowl MVPs, and two NFL MVPs.

Mahomes has baseball roots as he is the son of former Major League Baseball pitcher Pat Mahomes, who played for the Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs, and Pittsburgh Pirates over 11 seasons.

The auction for the autographed baseball ends Saturday. Current bidding is at $2,750 as of Thursday afternoon.
