    1934 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball Sourced from Walter Briggs. In Detroit, the Briggs family was an institution with the Detroit Tigers. Walter Briggs owned the Tigers from 1935-56 and had the stadium named in his honor. The team owner had this very baseball signed by the '34 Yankees and gifted it to a family member. This was a very important year for the pinstriped crew as it would be the final time Babe Ruth would wear Yankee blue before an abbreviated appearance with the Boston Braves in 1935.

    The offered Official League ball has shellac applied to preserve the twenty-one signatures. Ruth and skipper Joe McCarthy are relegated to the sweet spot. The Bambino's autograph is 7.5/10 with the "B" in "Babe" having a stain and the last name being a bit lighter. The Lou Gehrig signature has a few surface marks on the last name but is also in the 7.5/10 range with the first name being a touch nicer. Autographs include: Chapman, Walker, Gomez (last name light), Newkirk, Selkirk, MacFayden, Ruffing (8/10), Smythe (light), Heffner, Rolfe, Hoag, Tamulis, Crosetti and six more. Letter of provenance from Briggs family. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
