    Description

    1949 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. Though Casey Stengel's appointment to the Yankee managerial position was met with almost universal scorn by Bronx boosters in early 1949, those folks were singing a different tune as the Ol' Perfesser led the Bombers back to the promised land for the first of five consecutive Octobers. Many Yankee collectors are aware that Stengel is typically found in clubhouse format on team balls, but such is not the case here, and he joins twenty World Champs here in authentic format. Joe DiMaggio claims the sweet spot, with Mize (twice), Berra, Dickey, Rizzuto, Reynolds, Raschi, Crosetti and Collins nearby. Autograph quality ranges from 5/10 to 8/10 with just two exceptions, neither of which is among the names listed above. OAL (Harridge). The beginning of what is arguably the greatest dynasty in baseball history. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
