Item 9006 - 1938 NY Yankees Team-Signed Baseball Catalog 605 (Mar 2021)

Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $3,876.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Goldsmith 'Official 97 League' Southern Association baseball signed in ink on the sweet spot and side panels by 16 members of the 1938 New York Yankees team, including: Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Joe McCarthy (ss), Bill Dickey, Joe Gordon, Charles 'Red' Ruffing, Tom Henrich, Art Fletcher, Steve Sundra, Joe Beggs, John Haley, Johnny Murphy, Wes Ferrell, Bump Haldey, Frank Crosetti, and Jake Powell. In very good condition, with soiling, toning from a light coat of shellac, and scuffing affecting several names (slightly touching the downstroke of the "J" in DiMaggio's signature, and not at all affecting Gehrig's signature); the manufacturer's stampings are strong, including the facsimile signature of Southern Association President Trammell Scott on a side panel.

The 1938 Yankees season represented a passing of the torch—it was the veteran Lou Gehrig's last full season, and the young superstar Joe DiMaggio's third year as a big leaguer. Their careers overlapped for just four seasons, and to have two of New York's all-time greats on a single baseball is incredibly desirable. The Bronx Bombers swept the Cubs in the 1938 World Series—their third consecutive championship victory—cementing their place as one of baseball's great dynasties.

Provenance: The Roger Peckinpaugh Family.
