    1961 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball with No Secretarial Signatures. The enormous demands placed upon the M&M Boys as they edged ever closer to the Babe's single-season home run record had the unfortunate effect of poisoning most team balls with clubhouse autographs of one or both of the superstar sluggers, so it's always a welcome surprise when we find both appearing in genuine format. Mantle shares sweet spot space with fellow Hall of Famer Yogi Berra, while Maris appears immediately to the east.

    Twenty-six autographs appear in total, averaging a consistent 8/10 despite some surface abrasions, the signatures including Ford, Howard, Houk, Terry, Turley, Lopez, Skowron, Crosetti, Kubek and Blanchard. Jesse Gonder and Jack Reed shared a Bronx dugout only during this historic World Championship season, assuring the elite vintage. "Official League" ball is moderately and evenly toned. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
