    Description

    1947 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball with Joe Medwick. This will win you money in any sports bar in New York City:

    Ducky Medwick was a member of the New York Yankees. Oh yes he was! You don't believe me? A hundred bucks says you're wrong!

    Go to BaseballReference.com on your smart phone and present it to your victim. Well past his prime, the Hall of Fame outfielder for the Gashouse Gang was signed by the Yanks as a free agent on December 11, 1946. On April 29, 1947, he was released, having never taken the field in a regular season game. That didn't stop him from wedging himself into the sweet spot of the presented OAL (Harridge) ball along with DiMaggio (4/10) and Spud Chandler however. This is the only Yankees team ball we've ever encountered with this tough Hall of Famer. Twenty-eight autographs are here in total, averaging a consistent and conservative 8/10 throughout. Other notables include Rizzuto, Berra, Reynolds, Raschi, Henrich, Stirnweiss, Lindell and more. Page is secretarial. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
