Product Description

The World’s Finest 1961 WSC NY Yankees Team Signed OAL (Harridge) Baseball - PSA/DNA Graded 8.5 - (Signature Grade: 9, Ball Grade: 7, +.5 Eye Appeal, Overall Grade: 8.5).  The 1961 NY Yankees are widely considered the most dominant team in baseball history, just the uttering of the year alone draws forth the magical accomplishments that took place on the field.  They practically re-wrote the record books - winning 109 games and smashing 240 total home runs, while Whitey Ford led the majors with 25 wins and pitched a record 32 consecutive shutout innings in the World Series.  For the Yankees however, those accomplishments would take a back seat to one of the most dramatic home run duels in baseball history. The fabled "M&M Boys," Mantle and Maris, set their individual sights on Babe Ruth's legendary single season home run record, and in the process provided fans with one of the most exhilarating summers on record.  Mantle's chance at reaching the mark ended with a late season injury, leaving Maris alone to complete the chase. Despite unrelenting pressure from the media, the loss of his hair, and controversy regarding an asterisk next to his name, Maris persevered to his date with destiny, finally overtaking Ruth on that historic final game of the season.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own the highest grade 1961 Yankees team signed ball that is known to exist.  In a recent 2017 Heritage Auction, a 1961 Yankees ball PSA Graded 8.5 realized a price of $66,000.00!  In our opinion the ball we are offering has even more eye appeal for nearly half the price!  There are eighteen signatures adorning this OAL (Harridge) ball including:  Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra, Elston Howard, Moose Showron, Mel Allen, Bob Turley, John Blanchard, Bill Stafford, Earl Torgeson, Hec Lopez, Bill Stafford, etc.  The ball is in immaculate condition and is white all the around.  It has been nearly six decades since the Yankees historic 1961 season and this is hands down the best looking example to have surfaced yet.  The odds suggest you could be waiting for a very long time for a better one to come along!  Includes a very recent Full Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA (#AF03843).
