    Description

    1936 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. With the Babe Ruth era now in the rear view mirror, many Yankees fans were left wondering if the good fortune he brought to the Big Apple upon his hiring in 1920 would vanish in his absence. That concern was quickly put to rest just two years later, when a lanky kid from the west coast became the team's newest slugging sensation while bringing with him a fielding aptitude absent from the Babe's arsenal even in his prime. Batting ahead of Gehrig during that rookie 1936 campaign, DiMaggio quickly put American League pitching on notice that the Yanks would remain their greatest test.

    Presented is one of the finest team spheres we've encountered from that transitional pinstriped edition, an OAL (Harridge) ball that properly assigns sweet spot duties to the noble Iron Horse. Twenty-three teammates join Gehrig , including fellow future Hall of Famers DiMaggio, Lazzeri, Ruffing, Combs and Bill Dickey. Joe McCarthy appears as the sole clubhouse signature on the ball. Signatures range from 3/10 to 9/10, with most on the upper end of the spectrum. Tattered original box included. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
