The arrival of a rookie DiMaggio sparks four seasons of World Championship glory in the Bronx!1936 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. With the Babe Ruth era now in the rear view mirror, many Yankees fans were left wondering if the good fortune he brought to the Big Apple upon his hiring in 1920 would vanish in his absence. That concern was quickly put to rest just two years later, when a lanky kid from the west coast became the team's newest slugging sensation while bringing with him a fielding aptitude absent from the Babe's arsenal even in his prime. Batting ahead of Gehrig during that rookie 1936 campaign, DiMaggio quickly put American League pitching on notice that the Yanks would remain their greatest test.
Presented is one of the finest team spheres we've encountered from that transitional pinstriped edition, an OAL (Harridge) ball that properly assigns sweet spot duties to the noble Iron Horse. Twenty-four teammates join Gehrig at the same 7/10 to 8/10 average that characterizes the Captain's, including DiMaggio, Dickey, Ruffing, Combs, Lazzeri, Gomez, Selkirk, Crosetti, Rolfe, Pearson and McCarthy (the sole clubhouse entry). A very light and expertly applied coating of shellac is owed the credit for the fine state of preservation.
Advanced collectors are aware that this 1936 team ball is one of the toughest from the decade, and those seeking a superior example will likely meet nothing but frustration in the search. It's a rare opportunity to check a box on many a Yankee want list, and to do so in high style. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
