    1956 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. Fans in the Bronx certainly got their money's worth this season, as the great Mickey Mantle (clubhouse sig.) clubbed his way to the Triple Crown, and Don Larsen capped the season with a World Series perfecto. Each of these heroes of the '56 season is among the twenty-seven bold ink signatures that hug the curves of this OAL (Harridge) ball. Other notables include beloved skipper Stengel (clubhouse sig.), Berra, Ford, Slaughter, Martin, Howard, Skowron, McDougald, Bauer, Grim (Clubhouse sig.) and more. A light coating of shellac has kept the ink quality at an impressive average of 8/10 to 9/10. With a large percentage of Yankee team balls from this era plagued by secretarial signatures, the appearance of an entirely authentic specimen such as this is a noteworthy event. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
