    1949 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. Hard as it is to believe now, the 1949 Yanks were considered underdogs that season. They trailed the Boston Red Sox until the final two games of the season, which matched the teams against one another. The Yankees won both games in extraordinary fashion to finish one game ahead of the Sox. In the World Series, they would go on to defeat the Brooklyn Dodgers four games to one, starting their incredible run through the 1950's.

    The offered team signed baseball is an OAL (Harridge) in overall Excellent condition. Joe DiMaggio "clubhouse" signature takes up the sweet spot, although another hand has written "Yankees 1949" just above the signature. The writing just overlaps on the "J" in "Joe" and leads to an autograph grade of 8/10. Casey Stengel, Phil Rizzuto, Yogi Berra, Johnny Mize, Tommy Henrich, Allie Reynolds, Charlie Keller, Vic Raschi, Frank Crosetti and Ed Lopat are also included, and all are in 8/10 or better quality. The remaining eighteen signatures are in similar condition, making this an extremely pleasing example of a World Champions baseball. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
