Lot 1032: 1929 New York Yankees & Washington Senators Team Signed Baseball
UPDATE: The date inscribed is June 26 and not July 26 as was printed in the catalog.
Begotten from a game at Griffith Stadium between the New York Yankees and the Washington Senators, this team signed ball boasts 19 total signatures, including important players from both teams. Highlights include Ruth, Gehrig, Meusal, Hoyt, Combs, Lazzeri, Cronin, Sam Jones, Rice, & Marberry. The OAL (Barnard) ball with green & red laces is covered with a rich, dark tone indicative of such a vintage, antiquated sphere. It is additionally inscribed with the date and score of the game (June 26, 1929, Yanks won 7-0). Signatures are slightly to moderately faded, but all very legible.
