The 1932-34 World Series Champion era New York Yankees dominated the American League with 107 regular season wins before sweeping the Chicago Cubs in the World Series for the franchise's fourth title. This magnificent team-signed Official American League (Harridge) ball features 24 signatures including: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Bill Dickey, Earle Combs, Lefty Gomez, Joe Sewell, Cy Perkins, Red Ruffing (signed twice, with one deemed clubhouse), Frank Crosetti, Sam Byrd, Cy Moore, Dusty Cooke, Art Jorgens, Myril Hoag, and more (per the included PSA letter, Joe McCarthy, Joe Glenn, Red Ruffing, and Russ Van Atta have been deemed as clubhouse); ball rates in VG condition, with toning evident. Signatures average 6/10 overall with 7/10 Ruth and Gehrig on opposite sweet spots (Gehrig's is actually over the main stamp, which has mostly faded). Often overshadowed by the "Murderers Row" era Yanks of the 1920s, the '32 Yankees were dominant in their own right, winning the World Series best remembered for The Bambino's "Called Shot" against the Cubs - whether he did or didn't remains a discussion for the ages. PSA LOA.

Note: We believe the ball was signed by the Yankees during the 1932-34 era. Wilcy "Cy" Moore and Cy Perkins were Yankees from 1932-33, and the ball dates to 1932-33. However, the ball is also signed by Jimmie DeShong  who was a Yankee from 1934-35, and Russ Van Atta who was a Yankee from 1934-35.
