    1955 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. Although the cross-town rival Brooklyn Dodgers got the best of the boys in pinstripes in this 1955 World Series, the offered Spalding Official baseball still represents one of the most dominating dynasties in baseball. The Yankees had won all five previous match-ups with the Brooklyn squad in 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952 and 1953, and brought this event to a full seven games.

    Phil Rizzuto and Yogi Berra share the sweet spot on this sphere, in pleasing blue ink rating an 8/10. Mickey Mantle is the highlight, found on a side panel in 7+/10, while other notables include Ed Lopat, Whitey Ford, Bill "Moose" Skowron, Bob Turley, Hank Bauer and Elston Howard. Along with another fifteen signatures, these grade in the range of 7-8/10. The ball itself is toned with a couple of small stains and presents extremely well. Any team baseball collector will be thrilled to add this dynasty baseball to their collection. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

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