    Description

    1951 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. The single-season partnership of veteran Joe DiMaggio and rookie Mickey Mantle makes team balls from this World Championship edition one of the most desirable of the post-war era, and here we find those pinstriped legends among the twenty-seven signatures boldly applied to this OAL (Harridge) ball. The Yankee Clipper commands the sweet spot position while the Mick is found directly to the north. Other notables include Rizzuto, Berra, Mize, Lopat, Raschi, Bauer, Houk, Reynolds and McDougald. A number "35" written on the Reach stamping is consistent with other team balls we've encountered from player collections, so we suspect the ball originally belonged to number "35," pitcher Joe Ostrowski, whose signature appears just below the numeral. Autographs average 8/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
