    1961 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. National headlines were garnered by the 1961 Yankees as Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle battled for Babe Ruth's time-honored single-season home run crown. While Maris supplanted Ruth for the title, Mantle was injured and forced to the dugout down the stretch. When October rolled around, the pinstriped crew was at its absolute best. Signed by that band of brothers is this toned International League baseball. Most of the signatures fall within the 6/10 range with the occasional exception. Mantle is reserved for the sweet spot while Maris takes residence on a side panel. Other autographs include: James, Kubek, Coates, Reed, Maas, Ditmar, Turley, Lopez, Arroyo, Howard, Ford, Sheldon, Stafford, Boyer, Ralph Terry and five more. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
