Hemingway-Castro signed baseball to lead Tampa sale?

A baseball signed by Ernest Hemingway and Fidel Castro is to star in a sale at Harris Auctions in Tampa, Florida.

Hemingway was a keen fisherman 

The lot will lead an August 22 clear out of pieces from the Capital Pawn shop.

Joe Cacciatore, owner of Capital Pawn, told local news station WTSP: "In 1959, Castro and Ernest Hemingway were fishing…This was the day that Castro caught his biggest marlin."

The ball also features a drawing of a marlin.

There's no estimate available. As Cacciatore explains: "It's worth what somebody is willing to pay for it."

We have this signed invitation to a 1959 talk given by Castro in the US for sale.
