    1923 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball - First Championship Season!

    UPDATE: This ball dates to 1924, and the Ruth autograph is secretarial.

    It's the toughest of all twenty-seven Yankee World Championship spheres, and arguably the most significant--there's nothing like the first time!

    OAL (Johnson) baseball was originally autographed by twenty-plus Yankees. While many of those have since faded over the nearly one century since they were signed, many of the most important names are still with us, most notably a classic quotation-marked "Babe" Ruth on the sweet spot in his most desirable early format. Other notables include Miller Huggins, Herb Pennock, Carl Mays, Bob Meusel, Bullet Joe Bush, Sad Sam Jones, Ernie Johnson, Aaron Ward, and Mike McNally.

    The ball has aged and toned to a light grayish color while the autographs vary in strength with Ruth a 6/10 and Huggins a 4/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
