Signatures range in grade from ("8-9"). Overall a beautiful ball with extraneous markings of "1967 YANKEES" on the WEST panel, and a very light coat of shellac to preserve these signatures.

This is a high grade team-signed baseball from the 1967 New York Yankees team, a ball which was originally housed in a PSA/DNA NM+ sealed holder (cert. # 81468069), but had been removed by our consignor; the ball has been reevaluated by PSA/DNA for this auction.
