    1954 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. All good things must come to an end, as did the Yanks' five-season ownership of the American League flag and the World Championship the season this OAL (Harridge) ball made the rounds of the Bronx dugout. But their loss could be one smart collector's gain, as the brilliant cast of characters remains largely unchanged from its more expensive Championship vintage brethren. Most important is the early format of Mickey Mantle's signature, applied in 5/10 black ink upon a side panel. The balance of autographs are in blue, averaging 8/10 and including Slaughter, Rizzuto, Ford, Berra, Sain, Lopat, Skowron and more. Stengel is present in clubhouse form. Twenty-seven autographs are here in total, nicely preserved under a thin coating of shellac. A small amount of surface wear causes no major concern, leaving the ball to present remarkably well for its advanced age. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
