Description

Though they paced the American League in home runs (142, exactly half of which came from Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig) for a seventh straight season, the 1929 New York Yankees succumbed to Connie Mack’s second Athletics dynasty and finished as Junior Circuit bridesmaids. Along the way, (17) Yankee principals and longtime nemesis Ty Cobb autographed this OAL Barnard baseball. The orb showcases stampings that date to 1929-1931, while the Yankee signatures definitively date to the 1929 season. Executed in black-ink fountain pen, the scriptings average (“6”) potency and include: Sweet Spot: Ruth (clubhouse); North Panel: Gehrig (“5-6” strength) and O’Leary (coach); South Panel: Meusel, Bengough, Pennock (“5” strength), Koenig, Fletcher (coach), Wells and Cobb (“9” strength); West Panel: Robertson, Grabowski, Dickey (“4-5” strength) and Combs (“4-5” strength); East Panel: Lary, Durocher (“4-5” strength), Pipgras, Lazzeri (“4” strength) and Hoyt (“6” strength). Full photo LOA from JSA. This item has a reserve (estimated value: $2200-$4000).
