    1961 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball.
    All the memories of the Yankees' unforgettable 1961 campaign, complete with the heroics of the M&M Boys and World Series glory, are forever captured in time on this OAL (Cronin) baseball.

    Signed by twenty-six Bronx Bombers, including Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra on the sweet spot. At the bottom of a side panel, right next to Mickey and Yogi, sits Roger Maris, whose record-breaking sixty-one home runs helped earn him the A.L. MVP award that season. Others include Whitey Ford, Moose Skowron, Elston Howard, Ralph Terry, Bob Turley, Bobby Richardson, Toney Kubek, Clete Boyer, Johnny Blanchard, Al Downing, Luis Arroyo, Bud Daley, Rollie Sheldon, Bill Stafford, Bob Hale, Hector Lopez, Tex Clevenger, Billy Gardner, Jack Reed, Joe DeMaestri, Hal Reniff, Earl Torgeson (coach), Spud Murray (batting practice pitcher).

    Despite light toning and faded stamping, the ball is till beautiful. The ballpoint ink autographs, meanwhile, all fall within the 8-9/10 range. A fine specimen to say the least. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
