Description

    1951 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. Widely considered to be the most desirable of all post-war team balls are those featuring the 1951 Bronx Bombers, who earned the third of five consecutive World Championships under the new reign of Hall of Fame manager Casey Stengel. This pedigree is not entirely the reason for the elite status in the hobby, however. True Yankee fans will know that this season represented the only one that saw Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle share an outfield. Each is present and accounted for on this OAL (Harridge) ball along with twenty-three fellow Yanks, including Stengel (rare on team balls!), Berra, Rizzuto, Mize, Dickey, Martin, Reynolds, Woodling and more. An autographed personalization "To Jeff, From the 1951 N.Y. Yankees," is in the hand of Ol' Reliable Tommy Henrich. Signature quality ranges from 6/10 to 9/10 in ink boldness, though it must be noted that some gouges to the horsehid intersect with a few autographs, notably Mantle and Rizzuto. Still an impressive and desirable example for the discriminating collector. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,500 - $2,500.

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