    1961 New York Yankees Original Folk Art Team Signed Baseball Painted by George Sosnak. Art and baseball made a perfect combination on this glorious baseball which spells out Bombers glorious 1961 campaign. One side panel sports a painted image with a carefully crafted image of Mickey Mantle while an adjacent panel includes the Yankees image and stadium details. Seventeen members of the '61 World Series champion Yankees have signed in ballpoint on two other panels and include Mantle, Houk (clubhouse) and Hegan on the sweet spot, surrounded by Maris, Ford, Berra, Boyer, Richardson, Terry and others. Berra and Boyer have faded significantly and one other is illegible. The other signatures are all bold and average 9/10. A light, even coat of shellac was added to the sphere to preserve the signatures. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
