This is a hand signed American league (Bud Selig, Pres.) Rawlings baseball signed by Yankees "harmonica man", Phil Linz.Linz played 7 seasons in the bigs, but was most remembered for his "harmonica incident." Thus the musical notes next to his autograph.

Following the 1963 season, YankeesGeneral ManagerRoy Houkmoved into the GM position, while Yankees legendYogi Berraassumed managerial responsibilities.

As recounted inJim Bouton's book,Ball Four, following a Yankee loss to theChicago White Soxon August 20,1964, Linz was playing a plaintive version of "Mary Had a Little Lamb" on hisharmonicain the back of the team bus. Berra found the sad cowboy style mixed with a children'snursery rhymea bit mocking of the team, and told Linz to pipe down. Linz didn't hear and kept playing. Berra became infuriated and called back from the front of the bus, "If you don't knock that off, I'm going to come back there and kick your ass." Linz couldn't hear the words over the music, so he askedMickey Mantle, "What he say?" Mantle responded, "He said to play it louder." This led the famous confrontation between Berra & Linz.

This altercation convinced the Yankees' front office that Berra had lost control of the team, and could not command respect from his players. As a result, the decision was made to fire Berra at the end of the season regardless of the fact that the Yankees eventually won theAmerican PAAS, Cerificate of Authenticity: MF15279
