While 40 American League pennants and 27 World Series titles are ample attestation to the Yankees’ status as the most dominant franchise in the history of American sports, it was the club’s run of four straight Fall Classic crowns (1936-1939) that truly defined the Bronx Bombers as a world class entity: a team whose successes did not miss a stride despite the departure of Babe Ruth. This OAL Harridge ball is autographed by (15) principals from that era. The medium-toned orb has a thin coat of period shellac and features black-ink pennings whose strengths range from (“7”) to (“3”). Keys include: Combs (“4” strength), Dickey ("5-6" strength), J. DiMaggio (“3” strength), Gehrig (“5” strength), Gomez ("3-4" strength), Lazzeri (“3-4” strength) and McCarthy ("4" strength). Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.

The trademark stampings date the ball to 1934-1939. Signatures include:

Sweet Spot Gehrig (“5” strength); North Panel Murphy (“4” strength), Joe Cronin (“3-4” strength, signature likely obtained at a Yankees-Red Sox game) and Crosetti (“3-4” strength); South Panel Combs (“4” strength), Lazzeri (d.1946; “3-4” strength); J. DiMaggio (“3” strength), Gomez (“3-4” strength) and Broaca (“3” strength); West Panel Selkirk (“5-6” strength) and McCarthy (manager, “4” strength); East Panel Rolfe (“7” strength), Jorgens (“6-7” strength), Dickey (“5-6” strength) and J. Dempsey (former Heavyweight champion, “3-4” strength)
