Signatures range in grade from ("8-10", a couple lesser). All of the official ball stampings are dark and well stamped, and while the ball is very nice overall, there are a few areas of toning. This is a high grade team-signed baseball from the magnificent 1955 New York Yankees American League Championship team, just a Sandy Amoros catch away from another World Series title. Accompanied by full letters of authenticity from James Spence Authentication (JSA), and Beckett Authentication Services (BAS). Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
