Offered is a 1950 New York Yankees World Champions team-signed baseball with bold, black ink signatures including a very nice "Joe DiMaggio" on the sweet spot, in the Clipper's famous flowing script.
This off-white OAL (Harridge) Reach ball, with very light to light stampings, has been signed very boldly in blue ink by 26 members of the team, with SIX Hall of Famers including manager Casey Stengel and rookie pitcher Ed 'Whitey' Ford. It remains very tough to find a Yankees team-signed ball from this era without a clubhouse Stengel. Includes:
SWEET SPOT - Joe DiMaggio (nice!).
EAST PANEL - Page, Hopp, Mapes, Woodling and John Mize.
WEST PANEL - Yogi Berra, Madison, Burdette, Jensen, Crosetti, Bill Dickey and Collins.
NORTH PANEL - Bauer, Raschi, Silvera, Ostrowski, Ferrick, Bill Johnson and Casey Stengel.
SOUTH PANEL - Coleman, Reynolds, Houk, Ed Ford (Whitey rookie signature!), Phil Rizzuto and Henrich.
Signatures range in grade from ("8-9", a couple lesser). All of the official ball stampings are legible, but very light. All signatures are authentic, including the very nice Joe DiMaggio on the sweet spot, a superb Casey Stengel plus a rookie signature of Whitey Ford. This is a high grade team-signed baseball from the magnificent 1950 New York Yankees World Series Championship team. Accompanied by full letters of authenticity from James Spence Authentication (JSA), and Beckett Authentication Services (BAS). Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
