    1976 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8. Between 1921 and 1964, the Yankees dominated Major League Baseball, tallying twenty-nine A.L. flags and a breathtaking twenty World Series crowns. Then a drought ensued, and the Yanks went flagless for a dozen years and crownless for fifteen.

    The losing ways started to change soon after George Steinbrenner bought the franchise in 1973 and set about bringing talent to the Big Apple. By 1976, the boys were good enough to capture the A.L. title after a 97-62 season. Then, in dramatic fashion, first baseman Chris Chambliss sent New York to the big dance with a walk-off homer versus Kansas City in the ALCS. Despite losing to the Big Red Machine in the ensuing Fall Classic, the Yankees amazing 1976 campaign brought that championship feeling back to the Empire City and set the stage for back-to-back titles in 1977-78.

    A fabulous treasure dating from the Yankees rebirth during the super seventies, this OAL (MacPhail) orb is packed with thirty-one autographs, including Munson (A.L. MVP), Hunter, Lemon, Martin (sweet spot), Howard, Howser, Randolph, Nettles, Piniella, White, Guidry, Figueroa, Holtzman, Ellis, Lyle, Tidrow, Alomar, and Dempsey. The ball has some very light, even toning but is still gorgeous. The experts at PSA/DNA have graded the autographs an 8/10 and the ball a 7.5/10 for an overall 8/10. Comes with "Team Baseballs: Artifacts of the Game" book (2010) in which this very exemplar is pictured (on page 172). Full grading LOA from PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
