    Description

    1929 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. The two-time defending World Series champions were usurped as junior circuit kingpins by Connie Mack's dreaded Philadelphia Athletics who would go on to take the whole ball of wax. Despite winning a respectable eighty-eight regular season contests, the Bombers from the Bronx finished a distant eighteen games behind Mack's Men. And if things couldn't get any worse for New Yorkers, manager Huggins passed away in late September.

    Ruth dominates the sweet spot while Gehrig is perched above A.L. president's stamp on this OAL (Barnard) sphere. Two-dozen other defending World Series champions include Combs, Hoyt, Dickey, Lazzeri, Pennock, Durocher, Meusel, Koenig, Pipgras, Moore, Durst, Grabowski, Sherid, Paschal, Bengough, Lary, Zachery, Nekola, Byrd, Robertson, Wells, Heimach, Shawkey (coach), and Fletcher (coach). The ball shows even wear but is still nice. Some signatures are faded but all are fairly legible and can be deciphered. Ruth and Gehrig both check in at 5/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
