1936 N.Y. Yankees Team Signed Baseball
All one really needs to say is "1936 Yankee ball" for a strobe to light up -- Lou Gehrig and a rookie Joe DiMaggio on the same precious horsehide. Yes, indeed. On this magnificent and sparkling Official AL (Harridge) orb, The Iron Horse's marker is right where it should be, on the sweet spot, a little faded but capable of providing a good spine tingle. Joe D's is a few inches away on a side panel, lighter still yet unmistakable. Light or not, imagine getting your hands on such a bauble. Here's your chance, without going into hock. Other legendary names here include Lazzeri, Ruffing, Rolfe, Selkirk, Jergens, Pearson, Powell, Crosetti, Hadley, Brown, Welker, and the-hard-to-find Pat Malone. McCarthy and Dickey sigs are secretarial. All in all, signs grade 5-6 and the ball VG with a pleasingly subtle toning and a few soiled spots. '36 Yankee ball. 'Nuff said.
