Description

    1966 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. For the first time since 1912, the Yankees finished dead last in the A.L. in 1966. At one point in the season, paid attendance was less than 500 people. Certainly not the fan support the Bronx Bombers are used to, and amazing considering they were still fielding the "M&M Boys" in Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Even those two had a subpar season in 1966, with Mantle managing just fifty-six RBI with his twenty-three home runs, and Maris batting only .233. Still, despite the futile season, the lineup was a classic one, and the team is probably more fondly remembered now than during the season. Certainly one fan will take great appreciation in this offered Wilson unofficial baseball. Not only does it sport both Maris and Mantle, but they have signed together on the sweet spot, an absolute rarity in those days. Both signatures rate 8/10 and assure this ball a very worthy place in a sports room. There are twenty-six other signatures also found on the orb, including Tom Tresh, Joe Pepitonese), Fritz Peterson (clubhouse) Elston Howard, Bobby Murcer, Mel Stottlemyre and countless more. Most signatures range from 7-9/10 and the ball itself is a nice white example. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
