1961 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball, PSA/DNA NM-MT+ 8.5....
If Murderer's Row would have presented a formidable challenge for the Kennedy-era crew, there could be few if any 1961 team signed spheres that could compete with the listed representation. The experts at PSA/DNA clearly agree, assigning a well-justified 9/10 for the signatures and 7/10 for the baseball itself, the ideal OAL (Cronin) variety. Their half point addition for "visual appeal" completes the scoring.
Twenty-nine bold blue ballpoint autographs adorn the pale, blemish-free horsehide, with not a single instance of the clubhouse signatures which plague most Yankee balls from the era. Mantle and Berra share sweet spot duties, giving way to a World Championship cast of Maris, Ford, Howard, Richardson, Lopez, Terry, Blanchard, Skowron, Kubek, Boyer and more on the adjoining panels.
Unquestionably one of the finest autographed pieces of any format to derive from this hair-raising (and, for Maris, hair-losing) chapter of Yankee history. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, NM-MT+ 8.5. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
