    Description

    1928 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. Magnificent specimen dates to the height of the Murderer's Row era, and more precisely to the first months of that World Championship season. We know this from the appearance of the tough and tragic Urban Shocker on the OAL (Johnson) ball's side panel, the superstar spitballer who was released by the Yanks in the late spring of 1928 and would succumb to pneumonia several months later. Twenty-four fellow Yanks join Shocker, including Ruth (clubhouse), Gehrig, Lazzeri, Combs, Durocher, Coveleski, Dickey, Meusel, Koenig, Collins, Pipgras, Bengough, Grabowski and more. The black fountain pen ink utilized by this iconic Golden Age club remains stunningly bold, with only Cedric Durst (in blue) dipping below a strength of 7/10. The ball's stamping has been lost to the passing decades, but the ball's distinctive stitching is a dead giveaway assuring official status. Notations in the original owner's hand only add to the appeal. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
