Description

What separates the wheat from the chaff with '61 balls involves two things: HOW MANY and WHO. That is, how many clubhouse signatures and who they are. Mantle is often the linchpin of whether a ball is worth a mere 3-digit sum or a lofty 5-digit sum. (Incidentally, the most that has ever been paid for a '61 Yanks ball was $50,000 in 2012.) Then, of course, there's the matter of preservation. Here, we're proud to report, this "Official League" ball has a creamy-toned appearance with clubhouse-free signatures ranging from "6-7" to "9-10", averaging "7-8". All 26 scriptings are bona-fide authentic with no qualifications. Includes: Mantle ("8"), Berra ("7"), Maris ("6-7"), Ford, Crosetti, Howard ("7-8"), Kubek, Skowron, Ditmar, Daley, Richardson, Terry (light), Reniff, Houk, Turley, Sain, Sheldon, Torgeson, Clevenger, Coates, Gardner, Lopez, Stafford, Blanchard, Reed, DeMaestri.
