This creamy-toned OAL (Harridge) Reach ball, with moderately dark stampings, signed in ink by 21 members of the 1951 New York Yankees World Series Champion team, including a rookie-era Mickey Mantle. Includes:
SWEET SPOT - Joe DiMaggio.
EAST PANEL - Yogi Berra, Bauer, Ostrowski, Reynolds, Silvera, Bobby Brown and Mickey Mantle.
WEST PANEL - Turner, Phil Rizzuto and Sain.
NORTH PANEL - Woodling, Johnny Mize, Overmire and Stengel (CH).
SOUTH PANEL - Coleman, Shea, McDougald, Morgan, Collins, Crosetti and Henrich.
Signatures range in grade from ("6-8", some better, a few lesser). All of the official ball stampings are legible, but somewhat light. The Joe DiMaggio sweet spot signature is tremendous, as is the early Mantle autograph, but the Casey Stengel signature is a clubhouse varieties. An outstanding team ball from the one of the Yankees' most impressive teams, a team which sent one legend out with his last World Series title, and ushered in another legend with the first of his seven World Series titles.
