    1959 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. A year before they returned to the World Series, the Yankees were stuck in neutral for much of the season. Signed for Hank Bauer's nephew is this OAL (Harridge) baseball. The ball has aged moderately, and the signatures average 7/10 with a few lesser. We are able to link the ball to '59 because of the inclusion of Virgil Trucks, who only played with the Yankees one season. Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle (secretarial) share sweet spot duties. Other autographs include: Turley, Duren, Throneberry, Slaughter, Howard, Carey, McDougald, Bauer, Kubek, Maas, Shantz, Richardson, Ford, Ditmar, Siebern, Trucks, Skowron, Kucks, Johnson, Monroe, Larsen and one more. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
