Description

    1962 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. Unbeknownst to them, the 1962 Yankees would signal in the end of an era. The pinstriped dominance that marked the late 1940's to 1962 would end with this final World Series championship until a change of guard would win it back in 1977. Ralph Houk had taken over managing duties from legendary Casey Stengel, and the M&M Boys were the best show in town. In Mantle's final World Series victory, he would also win MVP awards this season.

    Featuring Mantle (clubhouse) and Yogi Berra on the sweet spot and Roger Maris on the logo, this OAL (Cronin) ball remains in excellent condition with no damage or distractions. Some of the more notable other names include such Yankee legends as Whitey Ford, Jim Bouton, Ralph Terry, Tony Kubek, Tom Tresh, Bill "Moose" Skowron, Ralph Houk, Elston Howard and Johnny Sain. Most signatures on this overall strong baseball rank in about 8-9/10, including an 8/10 Mantle and 9/10 Maris. Three signatures, including Clete Boyer, have faded considerably, but overall this is one of the strongest 1962 Yanks baseballs we have seen in awhile. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
