    1949 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball from The Gene Woodling Collection. The greatest world championship streak in Major League history would begin with this squad, which would win its first of five consecutive Fall Classics with newly minted manager Casey Stengel at the helm. This OAL (Harridge) baseball was secured from the collection of Gene Woodling and is penned by thirty-six members of that illustrious team. Even longtime equipment staffer Pete Sheehy checked in. Joe DiMaggio (6/10) and Casey Stengel (7.5/10) share sweet spot honors. Autographs average 8/10 with an occasional signature being compromised by a chip on the protective top coating. Included are: Sanford, Henrich, Lindell, Dickey, DiMaggio, Stengel, Coleman, Silvera, Page, Lopat, Brown, Delsing, Raschi, Mapes, Rizzuto, Houk, Sheehy, Byrne, Bauer, Berra, Stirnweiss, Mize, Casey, Hood (only year with team '49), Crosetti, Shea, Niarhos, Reynolds, Marshall, Bill Johnson, Woodling, Porterfield and four more. Letter of provenance from family of Gene Woodling. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
