    Description

    1961 New York Yankees Signed Baseball with Mickey Mantle & Roger Maris. The team, the season, the record. The 1961 Yankees dominated baseball like few before or since, going 109-53 and dispatching the Cincinnati Reds in the World Series 4-1. Roger Maris broke Ruth single season home run mark on the last day of the season to finish with 61 home runs 141 RBI and his second consecutive A.L. MVP award. Whitey Ford won twenty-five games and the Cy Young Award. Mantle hit fifty-four homers with 128 RBI and batted .317, while Elston Howard hit .348.

    The OAL (Cronin) ball on offer here from that magical season is packed with twenty-nine Bronx Bomber signatures, including Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle sharing the sweet spot, with Roger Maris in a familiar side panel position near the OAL stamp. Others include Whitey Ford (signed Whitey and not Ed), Elston Howard, Moose Skowron, Bobby Richardson, Tony Kubek, Clete Boyer, Ralph Terry, Al Downing, Luis Arroyo, Bill Stafford, Johnny Sain (pitching coach), Wally Moses (hitting coach), and Ralph Houk (manager).

    The ball is a clean off-white, and the autographs grade an overall 9/10 with Mantle (7/10), Berra (8/10), Maris (9/10). One of those timeless teams. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
