Large and impressive framed display featuring the cut signatures of forty-two members of one of the most legendary ball clubs in history: the 1961 New York Yankees. The attractive design of the piece features a "pinstripe" matting and includes both a team photo (14 x 8 inches) of the 1961 World Champions and a 1961 Yankees program. The signatures of two of the players, Elston Howard and Whitey Ford, are represented by signed Topps baseball cards in lieu of cuts.

Please note: the Mantle in the display is not authentic, but the display is accompanied by a second Mantle which is authentic, on an 8 x 11.5-inch sheet with an article printed, flawlessly signed in black ink. All of the signatures have been penned in either blue or black ink with the exception of Gardner (green ink) and range in grade from "8" to "10," averaging "9/10."
