Among the few measuring sticks for single-season dominance, the 1961 New York Yankees draw expected attention in this framed display that features forty different autographs. This mammoth 53x42 inch framed display has been professionally matted featuring index cards or cut signatures for most of the talent-laden Yankees, unless otherwise noted. Key signatures include Mantle (8x10 photo, PSA/DNA, signed in blue Sharpie 9-10), Maris (9), Howard (PSA Authentic 3x5 card), Berra (7), Ford (9), Crosetti (coach, 8), Johnson (1960 Topps card, 6), Kubek (8), Skowron (10), Torgeson (7) and Richardson (10). The die-cut matting and exquisite presentation makes this dynamic piece an aesthetically pleasing display. For a complete listing of all the signatories, please visit our website. The item comes with a full photo LOA from PSA/DNA for the entire piece as well as a full photo LOA for the Mantle photograph. Due to the size of this framed item, shipping surcharges apply.
