Despite the fact that Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, and Mickey Mantle made frequent signing-show appearances during the 1980s and 1990s, few collectors had the foresight to obtain all three signatures on a single ball, making such balls both rare and desirable today. Offered here is one of those rarities with the added bonus of having been graded NM-MT 8 by PSA/DNA. Each player has signed the official American League (Brown) ball in blue ink on a separate panel, with DiMaggio's signature appearing on the sweet spot. The Williams and Mantle signatures appear on the north and south panels, respectively. PSA/DNA has graded the ball an "8," and the individual signatures as follows: Mantle "9," DiMaggio "8," and Williams "8." Those grades, cumulatively, have resulted in the ball's final grade of NM-MT 8. This is only the second DiMaggio/Williams/Mantle ball we have ever offered and one of the finest we have seen. The ball remains housed in its original PSA/DNA ball cube (seal broken). Full LOA from PSA/DNA and auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
