    1951 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. The center of a five-season era of World Championship dominance in the Bronx is recalled with this spectacularly high-grade OAL (Harridge) sphere boasting twenty-nine bold black ink autographs. The beloved skipper Stengel makes a rare non-secretarial appearance, as does the legendary DiMaggio in his final season. The rookie Mantle is missing, easily explained by the several weeks spent working out the kinks in the minors that tough first year, but fellow Hall of Famers Berra, Dickey, Mize and Rizzuto are present with stars Henrich, McDougald, Martin, Bauer, Crosetti, Sain and more. Not a single autograph dips below 8/10, and the ball remains creamy and clean. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
