After a two-year hiccup in 1945 and 1946, the New York Yankees continued their winning ways, achieving another World Series Championship via a thrilling 7-game series victory over the (who else?) Brooklyn Dodgers. This lightly toned OAL (Harridge) Reach ball, with bold stampings, is signed in blue ink by 30 members of the 1952 New York Yankees World Series Champion team:

SWEET SPOT - Joe DiMaggio (a beauty!) and Spud Chandler (CH).
EAST PANEL - Henrich, Keller, Bob Johnson, Frey, Stirnweiss and Crosetti.
WEST PANEL - Gumpert, Clark and Shea.
NORTH PANEL - Lindell, Bevens, Brown, Reynolds, Starr and Raschi.
SOUTH PANEL - McQuinn, Robinson, Wensloff, Phillip, Don Johnson, Robinson (again!) and Phil Rizzuto.

Signatures range in grade from ("7-9", a few better). All of the official ball stampings are bold and dark, with a "47" written next to the Presidential label. The Vic Raschi and Spud Chandler signatures have been deemed a clubhouse variety by JSA, while PSA/DNA believe Chandler is the only CH. Beckett believes the ball is all good. An outstanding team ball from the beginning of the Yankees' late 1940s - early 1950's baseball dynasty. Accompanied by full letters of authenticity from James Spence Authentication (JSA), and Beckett Authentication Services (BAS). Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
