Beautiful Mickey Mantle & Joe Dimaggio Dual Signed Baseball Beckett COA

$1,995.00

The 1951 Major League Baseball season was noted for a "changing of the guard" for the New York Yankees, as it was Joe DiMaggio's final season after patrolling center field for 13 seasons and Mickey Mantle's first, after which he would succeed DiMaggio at the position. Mantle made his debut on April 17, 1951, against the Boston Red Sox and, during the season, played right field and center field as a late-inning replacement. The 1951 Yanks, under the direction of manager Casey Stengel, won the World Series over the New York Giants in six games.

Presented here is an Official American League Bobby Brown baseball signed by both Hall of Fame Yankees centerfielders, with Mantle gracing the sweet spot and DiMaggio taking up the north panel. The ball displays a hue of toning but stands in overall fine condition, with both blue ink signatures remaining bold. Given their long-standing rivalry, any item signed by both legends is exceedingly rare, with baseballs being especially desirable. Mantle died in 1995; DiMaggio passed away in 1999. This baseball comes with an LOA from Beckett Authentication for the signatures.
