Circa 1980s New York Yankees Signed Reunion Ball with DiMaggio and Maris
Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $830
Official American League (Cronin) ball signed in blue ink by twenty-three former members of the New York Yankees. This ball was most likely obtained at a Yankees Old Timers' Day game or similar affair given that all of the players who have signed the ball were retired at the time of the ball's manufacture (1983). The fact that this ball also features the rare pairing of Joe DiMaggio's and Roger Maris' signatures makes it especially desirable for Yankee collectors. The signatures appearing here are those of Joe DiMaggio, Roger Maris, Yogi Berra, Bill Dickey, Johnny Mize, Hank Bauer, Luis Arroyo, Johnny Sain, Charlie Keller, Spud Chandler (sweet spot), Bobby Shantz, Tommy Tresh, Vic Raschi, Ralph Terry, Mel Stottlemyre, Hank Borowy, Ed Lopat, Tommy Byrne, Bob Grim, George Selkirk, Allie Reynolds, Ryne Duren, and Moose Skowron. Signatures range in grade from "7" to "9." The ball is lightly toned along two side panels and the sweet spot; otherwise in Near Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $830
