    Description

    1961 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. It was one of the most magical seasons in baseball history, the sporting world held in rapt attention as a pair of New York Yankees chased the ghost of a third. Now, almost half a century later, we pull a rabbit out of the hat with the rare offering of a 1961 Yankees team ball with genuine signatures from both M&M boys. Serious collectors are well aware that the vast majority of 1961 and 1962 team balls from the Bronx are plagued with secretarial signatures from Mantle and Maris, but each appears here in genuine format, the former sharing the sweet spot with fellow future Hall of Famer Yogi Berra. Twenty-two signatures in total adorn this rather appropriate "Babe Ruth League" baseball, with Howard, Richardson, Turley, Tresh, Hegan and Blanchard among them. Original owner has written his name on the ball in red. Autographs rate a consistent 7/10 on the unblemished horsehide. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
