Official American League (Cronin) ball signed in blue ink by four of the greatest players in New York Yankees franchise history: Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Yogi Berra, and Whitey Ford. Berra's signature occupies the sweet spot, with each of the other signatures appearing on a separate side panel. The signatures are all fairly uniform and grade "7" on average. This is a unique combination of signatures on a ball and we cannot recall having ever seen another example. Maris' signature, of course, is the rarest of the three because of his death in 1985 at the age of fifty-one. The ball, which dates to the 1960-1969 manufacturing period, displays light soiling and a few tiny areas of light discoloration. In Excellent to Mint condition overall. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Pre certified by Steve Grade and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication. Please Note: both JSA and Beckett have deemed the Berra signature on this ball to be a "Clubhouse" example. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
