Throughout a storied history, even when the Yankees dont prevail, their impressive ledger grows deeper. Take the 1948 campaign, for example. While a 94-60 mark translated to third place, the club amassed 90-plus wins for their second of a record 12 straight seasons. More amazing, still, was the 23rd of 49 successive winning campaigns. Its no coincidence that this 1948 team-signed ball is among the most appealing exemplars out there. The clean creamy OAL Harridge orb (grade 8-9) is home to (26) blue ink pennings that average (7-8) strength. Headlining the parade are Bauer, Berra, J. DiMaggio (sweet spot, 8 strength), Keller, Lindell, Lollar, McQuinn, Reynolds and Rizzuto. Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
