      Offered is a unique item from the 1932 World Series Champion New York Yankees. That historic team would finish with a 107 wins and featured several future Hall of Famers.

All of the signatures have been signed in pen and start at the top of the barrel with the inscription “To the boys of Chicago Sincerely,”.

Manager Joe McCarthy signed his name perpendicular to the team and inscribed “MGR 1932”. That’s an impressive nine Hall of Famers listed on this bat (McCarthy, Combs, Dickey, Gehrig, Gomez, Lazzeri, Pennock, Ruffing, Ruth and Sewell). This bat comes with a full LOAs from Mears and PSA/DNA.
