After finally losing to the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1955 World series, the 1956 squad returned with a vengeance as they cruised to the American League pennant with a 97-57 record – nine games ahead of the second-place Chicago White Sox. The Yankees faced the Dodgers again in the World Series and this time the Bronx Bombers bested Brooklyn in seven games, including the historic perfect game thrown by Don Larsen in Game 5.

26 members of the 1956 World Champion New York Yankees have signed this Spalding stamped “Official Baseball” baseball in blue ballpoint pen. Hall of Famers Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle have signed their names on the sweet spot. The south panel has the signatures of Gil McDougald, Norm Siebern, Tom Morgan, Irv Noren, Don Larsen and Hall of Famer Phil Rizzuto. The east panel has the signatures of Jim Coates, Hank Bauer, Elston Howard, Andy Carey and Tommy Byrnes. The west panel has the signatures of Tom Sturdivant, Joe Collins, Bob Grim, Hall of Famer Whitey Ford (signed “Ed Ford”) and an unidentified player. The north panel has the signatures of Billy Hunter, Bob Turley, Johnny Kucks, Jerry Coleman, Robert Cerv, Bill Skowron, Charlie Silvera and an unidentified player. This ball displays toning while the signatures are clear. This baseball comes with a LOA from JSA (Y43457).
