Throughout a storied history, even when the Yankees don’t 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. It’s 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.

DiMaggio; North Panel Dressen (clubhouse), Reynolds, Keller, Raschi, Brown, Corriden (clubhouse) and Lollar; South Panel Byrne, Niarhos, Embree, McQuinn, Bauer, Rizzuto and Stirnweiss (clubhouse); West Panel Porterfield (clubhouse), Henrich, Berra, Shea and Harris (clubhouse); East Panel Johnson, Lindell, Schulte (clubhouse), Mapes, Lopat and Hiller.
