You don’t fill the vacancy left by “Babe” Ruth, but plugging Joe DiMaggio into the third slot in your batting order is an unbelievable consolation prize. Hitting in front of team captain Lou Gehrig, DiMaggio enjoyed an excellent freshman campaign in 1936, helping the Yankees to a World Series victory. Set your sights on this prize team-signed baseball featuring the powerful starting line-up that combined for a .300+ batting average to go with 150 homers and approximately 800 RBIs.
This antique OAL/Harridge ball (EX-MT) shows fairly even walnut toning with a thin layer of shellac preserving (18) 1936 Yankees autographs (average “6” to “8”) accompanied by a full photo LOA from JSA. The list of esteemed signers is as follows:
Sweet Spot: Lou Gehrig
North Panel: George Selkirk, Johnny Broaca, John Schulte, Frank Crosetti, Joe DiMaggio
South Panel: “Red” Ruffing, Tony Lazzeri, Don Heffner, Joe Glenn
East Panel: “Jumbo” Brown, “Red” Rolfe, Jack Saltzgaver
West Panel: Johnny Murphy, “Bump” Hadley, Monte Pearson, “Lefty” Gomez (clubhouse), Bill Dickey (clubhouse)
