    Description

    1949 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. The hiring of new manager Casey Stengel caused something of an uproar among fans and sportswriters faithful to the pinstriped cause, as the Ol' Perfesser's track record had been that of a consistent loser to date. Soon Casey was the toast of the town, however, as he skippered this squad to the first of five consecutive Bronx World Championships. Leading the charge was the great Joe DiMaggio, who appears on the sweet spot of this OAL (Harridge) ball. Among the full roster of twenty-nine joining the Yankee Clipper are Berra, Rizzuto, Dickey, Henrich, Crosetti, Reynolds, Raschi, Lopat and more. All signatures rate 7/10 or better in quality, and the ball itself is very clean and toned an even, creamy shade. A high-grade sphere from a high-grade team. LOA from PSA/DNA.

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