#8236 - 1938 New York Yankees World Series Champions Team Signed Baseball with Gehrig and DiMaggio Estimate: $3,000+

An OAL (Harridge) ball, with bold stampings, signed in blue ink by the following 18 members of the 1938 New York Yankees World Series Champion team:

SWEET SPOT - Lou Gehrig (sweet spot, "6" with some slight bleeding),
EAST PANEL - Powell and Bill Dickey.
WEST PANEL - Lefty Gomez, Rolfe, Andrews, Fletcher, Henrich and Chandler.
NORTH PANEL - Chas. Ruffing, Sundra, Glenn, Joe Gordon and Selkirk.
SOUTH PANEL - Crosetti, Joe DiMaggio, Wes Ferrell and Hadley.

Signatures range in grade from ("5-9", averaging "7"). All of the official ball stampings remain bold and legible and the ball has been coated with a light layer of protective shellac. There are a few extremely minor areas of light discoloration, however, they do not significantly detract from the overall excellent condition of the ball. The 1938 season would mark the Yankees third (out of an eventual four) consecutive World Championships, thanks in large part to the performances of both Joe DiMaggio and Lou Gehrig, who would combine for 83 home runs and an incredible 326 RBI. On the mound the Yankees would be led by Lefty Gomez' league-leading 21 wins and 2.33 ERA. An outstanding team ball from the height of the Yankees' late 1930's baseball dynasty. Accompanied by full letters of authenticity from James Spence Authentication (JSA), and Beckett Authentication Services (BAS). Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
