    1928 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. A second consecutive four-game Series sweep for the deadly Murderers' Row further cemented the team memorialized here as the educated historian's pick for best team ever. Based purely on Hall of Fame credentials we can see the reasons for the squad's success from the signatures applied to this OAL (Barnard) ball: Ruth, Gehrig, Lazzeri, Pennock, Dickey, Hoyt, Coveleski and Durocher. Among the other notables are Pipgras, Moore, Koenig, Byrd, Dugan, Meusel and Grabowski. While admittedly the signature quality could not be described as pristine, our catalog imagery should illustrate that the Babe and Gehrig rate a respectable 4/10 to 5/10, and all listed signatures are clearly legible. Twenty-three signatures are here in all, with every last one identifiable and ranging from 2/10 to 6/10. As the 1920's Yankees market continues on a constant and rather steep rise, an investment in a solid artifact such as this couldn't possibly lose. LOA from PSA/DNA.
