1979 Yankees Team-Signed Ball (Mickey Mantle, Reggie Jackson, Catfish Hunter, Thurman Munson)
Out of stock
Clearly, the 26 Yankee signatures placed on this ONL (Feeney) baseball date to Spring Training of 1979. A few of these names appear in red ink, but nearly all are readily legible, averaging “8” in quality. As a spiritual force during these trying weeks, trong>Mickey Mantle was on hand, and his autograph (in red) shares the sweet spot with trong>Bob Lemon and trong>Reggie Jackson. The Mantle signature is about “7”. That the ball derives from the pre-season is supported by the fact that it’s a National League ball, and because it includes Dick Tidrow and Paul Blair who were spurned early in April. Aside from these aforementioned, we identify the pennings of trong>Yogi Berra, Brad Gulden, Jay Johnstone, Doug Holmquist (didn’t make the team), Cliff Johnson, Bill White (then one of their announcers), Mike Ferraro, Lou Piniella, Paul Mirabella, Graig Nettles, Brian Doyle, trong>Thurman Munson (“8”), Ron Guidry, Mickey Rivers, Fred Stanley, trong>Catfish Hunter (“10”), Rich Gossage, Tommy John, Roy White, trong>Charlie Lau (red ink, “4”) and one other.
