NEW YORK YANKEES: 1950
Official American League baseball signed: "Casey Stengel", Whitey Ford (signed "Ed Ford"), "Ed Lopat", "Wally Hood", "Bobby Brown", "Cliff Mapes", "Gene Woodling", "Lew Burdette", "Johnny Hopp", "Frank Crosetti", "Gene Mauch", "Johnny Mize", "Charlie Silvera", "Jim Turner", "Joe Collins", "Jerry Coleman", "Phil Rizzuto", "Vic Raschi", "Yogi Berra", "Fred Sandford", "Hank Bauer", "Tom Henrich", "Tom Ferrick", "Ralph Houk", "Billy Johnson" and "Dave Madison". In all, 26 signers. The Yankees won their second of five consecutive World Championships under second year manager STENGEL in 1950, dominating the American League 96-56 and sweeping the Philadelphia Philies in a 4-game series. No other team in Major League history has won 5 consecutive World Series. (Only one other team, the 1960-1964 Yankees, won five consecutive pennants, and that team won only two of its five World Series appearances.) This ball has been signed by six future Hall of Famers (Stengel, DiMAGGIO, BERRA, FORD, MIZE, and RIZZUTO). At least five future managers, in addition to Stengel, are represented: BERRA, MARTIN, HOUK, BAUER and MAUCH. Eight signers made the All-Star team in 1950: Berra, DiMaggio, Rizzuto, BYRNE, COLEMAN, HENRICH, REYNOLDS and All-Star starting pitcher RASCHI. BURDETTE and JENSEN, minor role players for the 1950 Yankees, went on to star for the Braves and Red Sox, respectively. Former Yankee players CROSETTI and TURNER were coaches for Stengel. Another 21 signers played for the team in 1950. HOOD, who played for the Yanks in September 1949, never played a Major League game after that. Gene Mauch never played for the Yankees, although the team owned rights to him briefly in 1951-1952. Every member of the regular lineup for 1950 has signed this ball, along with four of the five starting pitchers. Slightly soiled and scuffed. Overall, fine condition. Presented in pedestal format, Gallery of History style.
