    Description

    1961 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball.
    Featuring a hard-slugging duo as sweet as the candy that shared its nickname, the 1961 Yankees and their fabled M&M boys stand in baseball history among the greatest of pinstriped editions. The Mick himself put it best when he told a reporter, "The best team I ever saw, and I really mean this, was the '61 Yankees. I never got to see the '27 Yankees. Everyone says that was the greatest team ever, but I think it would've been a great series if we'd have had the chance to play them."

    Twenty-three bold ballpoint autographs adorn the pale, blemish-free OAL (Cronin)horsehide. Berra and Mantle (clubhouse) share sweet spot duties, giving way to a World Championship cast of Maris, Ford, Howard, Skowron, Richardson, Kubek, Boyer, Blanchard, Arroyo, Lopez, Terry, Turley, Johnson, Sain, and more on the adjoining panels. The presence of Deron Johnson (who was traded to the A's on June 14th) indicates the sphere was signed in the first half of the season. A beautiful keepsake from a glorious chapter of Yankee history. Ball is off-white and clean. Signatures average NRMT. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
