Alas, the Bronx faithful had to settle for a mere five straight world championships, as their potential sixth was denied by the pennant-winning Indians. This heavily toned and shellacked OAL (Harridge) ball has a somewhat mottled appearance with blue-ink signatures averaging "5-7" strength on the whole (north panel lesser).
Sweet Spot: Berra, Reynolds.
North Panel: Mantle ("5" strength), Coleman, Miller, Bauer, Gorman, Byrd.
South Panel: Lopat, E. Robinson, Brideweser, Woodling, Kuzava, Houk, Stengel (clubhouse).
West Panel: McDougald, McDonald, Miranda, Silvera, Collins, Morgan, Ford, Carey.
East Panel: Turner (clubhouse), Sain, Noren, Rizzuto, Shallock.
