    Description

    1956 Don Larsen & New York Yankees Period Signed Perfect Game Scorecard & More. It's the most famous Fall Classic contest ever played, the sole perfect game in the full history of postseason Major League Baseball. One lucky fan in attendance at Yankee Stadium on October 8, 1956 headed down to the field after meticulously scoring Larsen's masterpiece, chasing down seven of the nine Yankee starters for autographs. The non-official scorecard is blessed by the 9/10 and better blue ink signatures of the historic battery of Larsen and Berra, as well as Mantle, McDougald, Martin, Collins and Bauer. Again we must stress that these autographs are correct for 1956 and were certainly applied that day. Heavy fold lines affect the simple four-page publication, but none to any significant distraction. Enhancing the lot are an original copy (VG-EX) of the New York Daily News trumpeting the feat and a second generation news photograph (EX-MT) of Larsen at work that historic day. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
