In the midst of their incredible run of four consecutive World Series championships in the late '30s, the 1937 New York Yankees banged out a sweet collectible by signing the offered 1934-1939 OAL/Harridge ball. This period signed sphere presents in decent condition with deference to a small gash on the reverse sweet spot stamping, that does not contact any of the signatures. Though the factory stampings are faded, the Harridge facsimile signature remains recognizable. (26) Members of the 1937 Yankees team have signed (average "4" to "6", (1) lesser) throughout with (5) HOFers including Lou Gehrig ("4-5"), though (3) signatures are recognized as clubhouse versions on the accompanying full photo LOA from JSA.
