    Incredible Old Timers Signed Baseball with Mantle, DiMaggio, Maris & More from the Casey Stengel Collection. If you consider yourself a Yankees fan and yet still don't bid upon this rare jewel of a baseball, turn in your pinstripes, hop on the "7" train and head to Shea instead. One of the greatest congregations of Yankees Hall of Famers appear on this Official Little League ball, as well as some of the greatest stars never fortunate enough to call the Bronx home. The ball was apparently intended as a gift from Stengel, as a side panel inscription in his hand reads, "To Greg, Old Timers Day, St. Louis 7/9/72, Casey Stengel." Thankfully, Greg never got his hands on this special sphere, leaving one lucky Heritage bidder to take his place. Just below Stengel's signature is that of Roger Maris, while fellow Yankee sluggers DiMaggio and Mantle share the sweet spot. A list of the balance of Cooperstonians: Slaughter, Hafey, Gomez, Musial, Mize, Henrich, Schoendienst, Medwick, Paige, Ruffing, Marquard, Dean and Dickey. That's sixteen Hall of Famers total! All twenty-three signatures rate a fabulous 9/10 or better, and the ball is toned an even, moderate shade. The ball has been encapsulated in a special PSA ball cube with a "Stengel Collection" label. A full PSA/DNA letter of authenticity attesting to the Stengel provenance is included as well.
