Description

    1951 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball.
    The rapturous joy felt by Giants fans in the wake of Bobby Thomson's famous "Shot" was short-lived due to the twenty-six gentlemen whose signatures appear on this OAL (Harridge) ball. The Yanks were unstoppable this October, even despite the fact that their rookie right fielder, a kid named Mickey Mantle, was lost to an injury that would plague him the rest of his Hall of Fame career in the Series' second game. "11" is written on the ball, which notates that it was signed for veteran hurler Johnny Sain. The toned ball holds signatures from: Raschi, Overmire, Woodling, Hopp, Morgan, DiMaggio (8/10), Shea, Schallock, Ostrowski, Bauer, "Mick" Mantle (7/10 - extremely rare early career exemplar), Mize, McDougald, Rizzuto, Reynolds, Coleman, Martin, Kuzava, Sain, Houk, Berra, Brown, Lopat, Brideweser and two more. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    Another major house refused the work stating it was too unique for the artist. Heritage saw that as an advantage!
