    Description

    1961 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. While everybody understands the elite significance of this particular pinstriped edition, a World Championship model best remembered for the twin assault on Ruth's single-season home run record, only cultured collectors are aware of the rarity of team balls like this one. The M&M Boys were so inundated with autograph requests during that historic season that most team balls bear clubhouse signatures from Mantle or Maris, or both.

    But the offered lot is a welcome diversion from the norm, with each and every one of the twenty-three signatures applied by the man himself. Mantle and Maris are both here, as well as Ford, Howard, Richardson, Lopez, Kubek, Boyer, Sain and even former Yankees ace Lefty Gomez. Signatures average 8/10. OAL (Cronin). Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Letter of provenance from grandson of Yankees photographer Ernie Sisto.
