The Finest 1930 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball On Earth!
The 1930 New York Yankees season was their 28th season. New York was managed by Bob Shawkey. The team featured numerous Hall of Famers including Lou Gehrig, Herb Pennock, Lefty Gomez, Bill Dickey, Red Ruffing, Waite Hoyt, Earl Combs and Tony Lazzeri.
The baseball offered was acquired just prior to the 1930 season during an exhibition game in Waco, Texas. The original owner's grandfather had waited for the Yankees team at their hotel and was able to get an incredible 34 signatures on the baseball making this baseball one of the most complete, if not the most complete 1930 Yankees Team signed ball ever offered for sale. The signatures are in strong blue fountain pen across every square inch of the leather baseball panels. The baseball features all of the key signatures and Hall of Famers and some very rare names as well that aren't often found on Yankees team balls during this era. Many 1930's Yankees team signed baseballs will feature 10-15 names, or perhaps even 15-25, however, this baseball has nearly twice more than the names usually found on the higher side. There are 34 signatures in total including:
Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Herb Pennock, Lefty Gomez, Bill Dickey, Red Ruffing, Waite Hoyt, Earl Combs, Tony Lazzeri, Chas Oleary, Art Fletcher, Bill Karlon, Lou Mcevoy, Bob Shawkey, Tom Zachary, Cedric Durst, Lyn Lary, Arndt Jorgens, Sam Byrd, Jimmy Reese, Bubbles Hargrave, Roy Sherid, Dusty Cooke, Benny Bengough, Ed Wells, Mark Koenig, George Pipgras, Dusty Rhodes, Bill Henderson, Foster Edwards and a few others. Comes with full letter Certificate Of Authenticity from JSA.
