    Description

    1937 New York Giants Team Signed Baseball. Age and a skillfully applied layer of shellac have granted this ONL (Frick) ball the elegantly toned look of a fine antique, a term which would certainly apply to this memento of the National League Championship squad. Instantly catching the eye upon first glance is the masterfully preserved signature of Mel Ott, who is joined by twenty of his uptown Manhattan teammates. Equal in strength, and arguably in talent as well, are fellow Hall of Famers Carl Hubbell and Bill Terry, with Ripple, Whitehead and Ryan also retaining fantastic signature darkness. Others range from 3/10 to 9/10, with the average a firm 7/10. Housing the ball to this day is the original Spalding box, showing some modern tape repair but otherwise quite solid and complete. A fine companion piece to the American League Championship New York Yankees team ball also found within this auction. LOA from PSA/DNA.
