    Description

    1951 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. The rapturous joy felt by Giants fans in the wake of Bobby Thomson's famous "Shot" was short-lived due to the gentlemen whose signatures appear on this OAL (Harridge) ball. The Yanks were unstoppable this October, even despite the fact that their rookie right fielder, a kid named Mickey Mantle, was lost to an injury that would plague him the rest of his Hall of Fame career in the Series' second game.

    This stellar OAL (Harridge) baseball is signed by twenty-six members of that championship outfit in bold ink, their autographs averaging 8/10 with just a few dipping below. Departing veteran Joe DiMaggio is rightfully reserved for the sweet spot while Mickey Mantle's rare and essential rookie signature occupies a side panel. Other notables include Berra, Mize, Rizzuto, Martin, Houk and Collins. A splendid example of one of the most important team balls in the hobby. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
