Presented is a sharp 1964 New York Yankees autographed team ball with (26) signatures on an OAL Cronin baseball. This ball, unlike most 1964 NY Yankees team balls, has the authentic signatures of both Mantle and Maris. The norm for the M&M boys was to have the clubhouse guys sign for them, but this ball features two real signatures of the great players. All of the signatures are a touch light from effects of time but are quite legible and grade (“5-7”). The ball is lightly toned and grades a (“7”). Highlights include Mantle and Berra on the sweet spot, Maris on the reverse sweet spot and Howard on the south panel. There are no clubhouse signatures at all on this relic. COA from James Spence Authentications and PSA/DNA. For a complete list of the signatories, please visit our website.
