This creamy-toned OAL ball contains no stampings and 32 black ink signatures, which range in grade from "7-9." The signature of Casey Stengel has been determined to be clubhouse. The ball contains a light coating of shellac, the label part has the notation "1953 NEW YORK YANKEES WORLD CHAMPS" and there is a small scrape to the Mantle signature. Despite the Stengel CH signature, this is a tremendous ball which celebrated the Yankees final World Series title during their amazing five-year run of World Championships.
