    Description

    1932 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball from the World Series. Dating from the season of Ruth's last World Series championship and his mythical "Called Shot," presented here is a 1932 New York Yankees team signed baseball. Based on the fact that the autographs were applied to ONL (Heydler) sphere, the ball was in all likelihood signed in either Game 3 or Game 4 of the 1932 World Series at Wrigley Field in Chicago. As such, there is a fifty percent chance that this baseball was present and signed during the "Called Shot" game.

    Autographed by eighteen Bronx Bombers (including eight Hall of Famers!) in black steel-tip fountain pen with Babe Ruth occupying the sweet spot. Orbiting The Bambino are Lou Gehrig, Tony Lazzeri, Earle Combs, Joe Sewell, Red Ruffing, Lefty Gomez, Herb Pennock, Frank Crosetti, Myril Hoag, Ben Chapman, George Pipgras, Wilcy Moore, Dan MacFayden, Ed Wells, Lyn Lary, Sam Byrd, and Jumbo Brown. The ball has browned in the eighty-seven years since it was authored and there are some chips in the shellac, which was applied to preserve the signatures. The autographs grade to an overall 7/10 with both Ruth and Gehrig grading at an 8/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
