A killer representation from Murderer's Row!1927 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. Of the twenty-seven pinstriped editions to deliver World Championship glory to the fans in the Bronx, this Golden Age club stands in baseball lore as the finest of the lot. In fact, this club is the answer most commonly given by baseball experts and historians when pressed to name the greatest baseball team of all time, bar none. When one considers the roster made available to Hall of Fame manager Miller Huggins, the reasoning behind this wide consensus becomes clear. The all but supernatural slugging powers of home run king Babe Ruth and season MVP Lou Gehrig fed an unprecedented offensive onslaught that saw the Yanks almost quadruple the American League team home run average. Earle Combs topped the League in both singles and triples. Bob Meusel and Tony Lazzeri each reached triple-digits in the RBI column. So deadly were the bats that stacked the Yankee line-up that sportswriters referred to the club with the rather sinister moniker "Murderer's Row."
Here we present one of the finest baseballs in the hobby to document that glorious Golden Age club. The list of names reads like a Cooperstown roll call: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Tony Lazzeri, Waite Hoyt, Earle Combs, Herb Pennock. Seventeen signatures appear in total, with all top starters present. The balance of signers: Collins, Koenig, Dugan, Meusel, Paschal, Shawkey, Pipgras, Bengough, Gazella, Ruether, Thomas. Remarkably, every autograph rates 8/10 or better, applied to an OAL (Johnson) baseball with script (rather than block) "American League Ball" stamping that was only produced under Johnson's reign in 1927.
Only a scattering of small brown patches supply any noteworthy deviation from perfection, but, as our catalog imagery will convey, these remain clear of the autographs almost entirely, and do nothing to diminish the remarkable aesthetics. Without any danger of unwarranted hyperbole, we can declare this representation as one of the two or three finest known to the hobby, a status that likewise establishes the offering as one of the best team balls, bar none. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
