    1931 New York Yankees Partial Signed Baseball with Rare Eddie Bennett.
    No team in baseball history was more densely packed with future Cooperstown inductees than the New York Yankees of the early 1930's, with this 1931 incarnation featuring ten men who would make the transition from pinstripes to Hall of Fame bronze. We find six of them on this Babe Ruth Special orb. The Bambino takes his customary sweet spot position, joined by eleven teammates. While Ruth's autograph is barely visible one of the names on a side panel deserves special mention. The Bambino's personal bat boy, and team favorite, Eddie Bennett signed a side panel in 8/10 black ink. Bennett rarely signed autographs and his early death in 1935 has made finding one nearly impossible. The two "n's" in Bennett are a bit light but the rest of the signature stands out. Lou Gehrig (5/10) is found on a side panel with a teammate, and The Iron Horse's autograph has a few spots of light material loss. Others who signed include: Combs (8/10), Lazzeri (5/10), Sherid, Gomez, Pennock (7/10), Sewell, and three more. PSA/DNA mentioned in their LOA that the Ruth and Gehrig were partially traced over.
