    1927 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. For more than ninety years, the discussions and debates always seem to start and end with the 1927 Yankees when the topic is the greatest single season team ever. This OAL (Johnson) baseball is assured of that very vintage by the combination of the scripted font of the sweet spot logo, the inaugural appearance of "The Cushioned Cork Center" core, and Ban Johnson's league stewardship. While the eight steel-tip black fountain pen autographs contained herein fall way short of the total roster, those present do include some of the most important.

    Babe Ruth (7.5/10, with "Babe" wrapped in double quotation marks) is right where he should be; on the sweet spot. On the panels below and to his right sit fellow Hall of Famers Lou Gehrig (7/10), Tony Lazzeri (8/10), and Herb Pennock (5/10). Other Murderers Row inmates include eighteen-game winner Urban Shocker, .337 hitter Bob Meusel, .317 hitter Ben Paschal, and pitcher Bob Shawkey. An exemplar no autographed baseball collection should be without. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $9,000 - up.
