#8239 - 1945 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball with 28 Signatures including McCarthy Estimate: $1,200+

Offered is a light creamy-toned OAL (Harridge) ball, with bold stampings and some light spotting, signed in black ink by the following 28 members of the 1945 New York Yankees team, which finished out of first place for the second consecutive war-torn season. Includes:

SWEET SPOT - Joe McCarthy and Mike Milosevich.
EAST PANEL - Metheny, Turner, Stainback, Crompton, Holcombe and Martin.
WEST PANEL - Nuen, Zuber, Schulte, Savage and Stirnweiss.
NORTH PANEL - Bonham, Schreiber, Buzas, Dubiel, Gettel, Derry and Bevens.
SOUTH PANEL - Drescher, Garbark, Rosen, Fletcher, Grimes, Borowy, Page and Crosetti.

These mid 1940's team-signed baseballs are very interesting since many of these players were only major leaguers due to the many players drafted into World War II, and examples of their signatures are tough to locate. These team-signed balls from this era are very scarce.

Signatures range in grade from ("5-8" - a half dozen lesser). All of the official ball stampings remain moderately bold and legible with some areas of toning. Interesting team-signed baseball with many signatures of players who had a 'cup of coffee' in the major leagues. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from James Spence Authentication (JSA). Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
