A great ball with a great story is offered in this lot. Ben Price was the photographer and Picture Editor of the New York Herald Tribune and was assigned to cover the World Series game between the Yankees and the Dodgers on October 8, 1956. Ben's large camera was set on a heavy tripod and during the game, the camera and tripod tumbled over, breaking Ben's arm. Price was then taken into the Yankees' locker room where the team physician ultimately set his arm in a cast. When the team came into the locker room following the game, Billy Martin spotted the photographer and, noting that he was in great discomfort, told him to "hold on." Martin then went to Larsen, who then took a baseball, signed it and inscribed "Ben Price Sorry About the Accident. Get Well Soon. Don Larsen Oct. 8, 1956 Yankees Dodgers World Series No Hit 2 - 0 NY." Price then met Bob Feller in 1974 and had him sign the ball with "4/26/1974" inscription. The Official American League (Harridge) ball comes with LOA from Price family.
