    A spectacular commemoration of an elite Bronx vintage

    1961 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball--World Champions! Featuring a hard-slugging duo as sweet as the candy that shared its nickname, the 1961 Yankees and their fabled M&M boys stand in baseball history among the greatest of pinstriped editions. The Mick himself put it best when he told a reporter, "The best team I ever saw, and I really mean this, was the '61 Yankees. I never got to see the '27 Yankees. Everyone says that was the greatest team ever, but I think it would've been a great series if we'd have had the chance to play them."

    If Murderer's Row would have presented a formidable challenge for the Kennedy-era crew, there could be few if any 1961 team signed spheres that could compete with the listed representation. The OAL (Cronin) sphere has aged gracefully to an attractive cream color. Meanwhile, the thirty-one bold blue ballpoint autographs grade an overall 8.5/10 in strength, with not a single instance of the clubhouse signatures which plague most Yankee balls from the era. Mantle and Berra share sweet spot duties, giving way to a World Championship cast of Maris, Ford, Howard, Skowron, Richardson, Kubek, Boyer, Terry, Turley, Sain, Arroyo, manager Houk, announcer Allen, and more on the adjoining panels.

    Unquestionably one of the finest autographed pieces of any format to derive from this hair-raising (and, for Maris, hair-losing) chapter of Yankee history, the presented baseball celebrates its sixtieth anniversary on its proper Platinum pedestal. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
