    Circa 1923 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. The first of twenty-seven World Championship teams to call the Bronx home, this is the team that properly christened the original Yankee Stadium with its Fall Classic success. The man who Built the House appears on the sweet spot, and signatures of his teammates occupy the side panels. This ball was signed around the time the Yankees won their first World Series. Two of the men who signed the OAL (Johnson) ball, Ernie Johnson and Carl Mays, have only 1923 as their common year. Ben Shields also signed the ball and he first appeared in '24. Many of the autographs are lost from time and exposure. Ruth's signature is barely visible as the "Babe" portion has surface wear. Autographs we can make our are: Carl Mays (7/10), Ernie Johnson, Ben Shields, Wally Pipp (first name nearly gone), Miller Huggins (reduced) and more. The original box attends. The top is tape affixed. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
